Migration Point-in-Time Service Updates

Monday 4 September 2017 @ 10.32 a.m.

The Migration Point-in-Time Service has been updated to include the amendments from the Statute Update (Winter 2017) Act 2017 (93 of 2017).

Act 93 of 2017

The main purpose of this Act is to correct technical errors that have occurred in Acts as a result of drafting and clerical mistakes.
This Act also contains amendments to:

  • amend Acts so that their text reflects the legal effect that Part 6 of the Acts and Instruments (Framework Reform) Act 2015 (Cth) and section 10 of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 (Cth) currently have; and
  • repeal spent and obsolete provisions and Acts (which will result in the repeal of approximately 46 pages of spent and obsolete provisions); and
  • modernise language and make other technical amendments in certain legislation.

The amendments also enhance readability, facilitate interpretation and administration, and promote consistency across the Commonwealth statute book. The amendments are minor and technical in nature. The amendments either make no change or only minor changes to the substance of the law. Because some amendments may make minor changes, the amendments were not considered appropriate for inclusion in a Statute Law Revision Act.

The amendments made by Act 93 of 2017 have been updated in the Point-in-Time Migration Service current to 31 August 2017. (NB: Subscription required).
