Medicines Regulations 1984
Status of reprints How reprints are prepared Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and RegulationsPublication Act 1989 List of amendments incorporated in this reprint (most recentfirst) General
This is a reprint of the Medicines Regulations 1984. The
reprint incorporates all the amendments to the regulations as
at 1 December 2011, as specified in the list of amendments at
the end of these notes.
Relevant provisions of any amending enactments that contain
transitional, savings, or application provisions that cannot be
compiled in the reprint are also included, after the principal
enactment, in chronological order. For more information, see
.
Status of reprints
Under of the Acts and Regulations Publication
Act 1989, reprints are presumed to correctly state, as at the
date of the reprint, the law enacted by the principal enactment
and by the amendments to that enactment. This presumption
applies even though editorial changes authorised by of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989 have
been made in the reprint.
This presumption may be rebutted by producing the official
volumes of statutes or statutory regulations in which the prin-
cipal enactment and its amendments are contained.
How reprints are prepared
A number of editorial conventions are followed in the prep-
aration of reprints. For example, the enacting words are not
included in Acts, and provisions that are repealed or revoked
Reprinted as at1 December 2011 Medicines Regulations 1984
are omitted. For a detailed list of the editorial conventions,see or Part 8 of the Tables of New Zealand Acts and Ordinancesand Statutory Regulations and Deemed Regulations in Force.
Changes made under section 17C of the Acts and
Regulations Publication Act 1989
of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989
authorises the making of editorial changes in a reprint as set
out of that Act so that, to the extent
permitted, the format and style of the reprinted enactment is
consistent with current legislative drafting practice. Changes
that would alter the effect of the legislation are not permitted.
A new format of legislation was introduced on 1 January 2000.
Changes to legislative drafting style have also been made since
1997, and are ongoing. To the extent permitted of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989, all legisla-
tion reprinted after 1 January 2000 is in the new format for
legislation and reflects current drafting practice at the time of
the reprint.
In outline, the editorial changes made in reprints under the au-
thority of of the Acts and Regulations Publication
Act 1989 are set out below, and they have been applied, where
relevant, in the preparation of this reprint:

omission of unnecessary referential words (such as "ofthis section" and "of this Act") typeface and type size (Times Roman, generally in 11.5point) layout of provisions, including:• position of section headings (eg, the number andheading now appear above the section) format of definitions (eg, the defined term now appearsin bold type, without quotation marks) format of dates (eg, a date formerly expressed as "the1st day of January 1999" is now expressed as "1 January1999") Medicines Regulations 1984
position of the date of assent (it now appears on the frontpage of each Act) punctuation (eg, colons are not used after definitions) Parts numbered with roman numerals are replaced witharabic numerals, and all cross-references are changedaccordingly case and appearance of letters and words, including:• format of headings (eg, headings where eachword formerly appeared with an initial cap-ital letter followed by small capital letters areamended so that the heading appears in bold,with only the first word (and any proper nouns)appearing with an initial capital letter) small capital letters in section and subsection ref-erences are now capital letters schedules are renumbered (eg, Schedule 1 replaces FirstSchedule), and all cross-references are changed accord-ingly running heads (the information that appears at the topof each page) format of two-column schedules of consequentialamendments, and schedules of repeals (eg, they arerearranged into alphabetical order, rather than chrono-logical).
