1   Effect of amendment of amending provisions
(1)  An amendment made by Schedule 1 to an amending provision contained in an Act or instrument is, if the amending provision has commenced before the Schedule 1 amendment concerned, taken to have effect as from the commencement of the amending provision (whether or not the amending provision has been repealed).
(2)  In this clause—
amending provision means a provision of an Act or instrument that makes a direct amendment to an Act or instrument by—
(a)  the repeal or omission of matter contained in the amended Act or instrument without the insertion of any matter instead of the repealed or omitted matter, or
(b)  the omission of matter contained in the amended Act or instrument and the insertion of matter instead of the omitted matter, or
(c)  the insertion into the amended Act or instrument of matter, not being matter inserted instead of matter omitted from the Act or instrument.
Explanatory note
This clause ensures that an amendment made by the proposed Act to a repealing or amending provision of an Act or instrument will (if the repealing or amending provision commences before the amendment made by the proposed Act) be taken to have commenced on the date the repealing or amending provision commences.
2   Effect of amendment or repeal on acts done or decisions made
Except where it is expressly provided to the contrary, if this Act—
(a)  amends a provision of an Act or an instrument, or
(b)  repeals and re-enacts (with or without modification) a provision of an Act or an instrument,
any act done or decision made under the provision amended or repealed has effect after the amendment or repeal as if it had been done or made under the provision as so amended or repealed.
Explanatory note
This clause ensures that the amendment or repeal of a provision will not, unless expressly provided, vitiate any act done or decision made under the provision as in force before the amendment or repeal.
3   Effect of amendment on instruments
Except where expressly provided to the contrary, any instrument made under an Act amended by this Act, that is in force immediately before the commencement of the amendment, is taken to have been made under the Act as amended.
Explanatory note
This clause ensures that, unless expressly provided, any instrument that is in force and made under a provision of an Act that is amended or substituted by the proposed Act will be taken to have been made under the Act as amended.
4   Revocation of repeal
Section 29A of the Interpretation Act 1987 applies to the repeal of Acts or instruments, or provisions of Acts or instruments, by this Act.
Explanatory note
The effect of this clause is to enable the Governor, by proclamation, to revoke the repeal of any Act or instrument, or any provision of any Act or instrument, by the proposed Act. The Act or instrument, or provision, the subject of the revocation of repeal is taken not to be, and never to have been, repealed.
5   Regulations
(1)  The Governor may make regulations containing provisions of a savings or transitional nature consequent on the enactment of this Act.
(2)  Any such provision may, if the regulations so provide, take effect from the date of assent to this Act or a later date.
(3)  To the extent to which any such provision takes effect from a date that is earlier than the date of its publication on the NSW legislation website, the provision does not operate so as—
(a)  to affect, in a manner prejudicial to any person (other than the State or an authority of the State), the rights of that person existing before the date of its publication, or
(b)  to impose liabilities on any person (other than the State or an authority of the State) in respect of anything done or omitted to be done before the date of its publication.
Explanatory note
This clause enables the making of regulations of a savings or transitional nature relating to incidental matters arising out of the proposed Act.
