1  Name
                   This is the Legislative Instruments (Deferral of Sunsetting—Legislative Instruments Regulations) Certificate 2015.
2  Commencement
                   This instrument commences on the day after it is registered.
3  Authority
                   This instrument is made under paragraph 51(1)(c) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.
4  Definitions
                   In this instrument:
Act means the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.
5  Statement of reasons for issue of certificate
                   For paragraph 51(2)(a) of the Act, this section sets out the statement of the reasons for the issue of this certificate.
Statement of reasons
                   I am satisfied that the Legislative Instruments Regulations 2004 (the Regulations) would (apart from the operation of Part 6 of the Act) be likely to cease to be in force within 12 months after the sunsetting day for the Regulations.
                   The Regulations are made under the Legislative Instruments Act 2003. On 22 October 2014, the Government introduced the Acts and Instruments (Framework Reform) Bill 2014 into the House of Representatives. The Bill proposes to substantially amend the Legislative Instruments Act 2003. If the Bill is passed, a comprehensive review of the Regulations will be needed. As a result, the Government anticipates that the Regulations will be repealed and remade in early 2016.
                   The Regulations are due to sunset on 1 April 2015. A 12 month deferral of the sunsetting day for the Regulations will likely avoid the need to remake the Regulations in their current form for the short period before the proposed amendments of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 commence and new regulations are made.
6  Deferral of sunsetting of the Legislative Instruments Regulations 2004
                   The Legislative Instruments Regulations 2004, for which the sunsetting day is 1 April 2015, are taken to cease to be in force under section 51 of the Act on 1 April 2016.
