Marginal note:Coming into force

  •  (1) No regulation shall come into force on a day earlier than the day on which it is registered unless

    • (a) it expressly states that it comes into force on a day earlier than that day and is registered within seven days after it is made, or

    • (b) it is a regulation of a class that, pursuant to paragraph 20(b), is exempted from the application of subsection 5(1),

    in which case it shall come into force, except as otherwise authorized or provided by or under the Act pursuant to which it is made, on the day on which it is made or on such later day as may be stated in the regulation.

  • Marginal note:Where regulation comes into force before registration

    (2) Where a regulation is expressed to come into force on a day earlier than the day on which it is registered, the regulation-making authority shall advise the Clerk of the Privy Council in writing of the reasons why it is not practical for the regulation to come into force on the day on which it is registered.
