Part 10 Division 5 Clause 244
244   Mandatory condition relating to other reporting
(1)  A condition imposed by this clause is a mandatory condition for the purposes of sections 115 and 115A(b) of the Act.
(2)  It is a condition of each authority that is the subject of a mandatory metering equipment condition that the holder of the authority must—
(a)  record in the approved form and manner when water is taken using a work to which the authority applies under a basic landholder right or in other circumstances other than under an access licence or a licence or other entitlement under the former 1912 Act, and
(b)  if the authority is subject to a condition that the holder must confirm specified matters before water is taken in accordance with the authority—record, in the approved form and manner, the means by which the holder confirmed those specified matters, and
(c)  record the information not later than 24 hours after any day during which water is taken as referred to in paragraph (a) or (b).
(2A)  Subclause (2)(b) does not apply in relation to water taken from a regulated river.
(2B)  A record under subclause (2)(a) is to be given to the Minister in an approved form and manner.
(3)  If, immediately before an authority became the subject of a mandatory metering equipment condition, the authority was subject to a condition requiring the holder to record information of a kind referred to in subclause (2) in relation to a work, the authority is taken to be amended by removing the condition, and any other condition relating to keeping logbooks to record or report water that is taken, in relation to that work.
(4)  For the purposes of subclause (3), it does not matter whether or not the condition relating to recording information or keeping logbooks also requires other information to be recorded.
