Recorded Delivery Service (Jersey) Law 1963

A LAW to authorize the sending by the recorded delivery service of certain documents and other things required or authorized to be sent by registered post, and for purposes connected therewith

Commencement [see endnotes]

1      Application and interpretation

(1)    This Law applies to any enactment passed before the commencement of this Law or within one year thereafter, other than an enactment which, either as originally enacted or as amended by any subsequent enactment, requires or authorizes a thing to be sent by the recorded delivery service as an alternative to registered post or makes provision in relation to a thing sent by that service; and references in this Law (except this Article) to any enactment shall be construed accordingly.

(2)    In this Law –

(a)     references to sending a document or other thing include references to serving, executing, giving or delivering it or doing any similar thing;

(b)     references to sending any thing by registered post include references to sending it by or in a registered letter or packet, whether the references are expressed in those terms or terms having the like effect and whether or not there is any mention of the post or prepayment; and

(c)     references to any thing sent by registered post or the recorded delivery service shall be construed accordingly.

2      Recorded delivery service to be an alternative to registered post

(1)    Any enactment which requires or authorizes a document or other thing to be sent by registered post (whether or not it makes any other provision in relation thereto) shall have effect as if it required or, as the case may be, authorized that thing to be sent by registered post or the recorded delivery service; and any enactment which makes any other provision in relation to the sending of a document or other thing by registered post or to a thing so sent shall have effect as if it made the like provision in relation to the sending of that thing by the recorded delivery service or, as the case may be, to a thing sent by that service.

(2)    Without prejudice to the generality of paragraph (1), any reference, however worded –

(a)     in any enactment the provisions of which apply to, or operate in consequence of the operation of, any enactment amended by paragraph (1); or

(b)     in any enactment relating to the sending of documents or other things otherwise than by registered post or to documents or other things so sent,

to the registered post or to a registered letter or packet, shall be construed as including a reference to the recorded delivery service or to a letter or packet sent by that service; and any reference, however worded, in any such enactment to a Post Office receipt for a registered letter or to an acknowledgement of or certificate of delivery of a registered letter shall be construed accordingly.

(3)    This Article shall not be construed as authorizing the sending by the recorded delivery service of anything in a case where there is a provision to the contrary in the Postal Services (Jersey) Law 2004[1] or in any instrument made under that Law (including a postal scheme made under that Law) or in any agreement made with the relevant postal operator (within the meaning of that Law).[2]
