Delegated legislation

Delegated legislation

Delegated legislation, sometimes referred to as subordinate legislation, is law made by the Governor on the advice of the Government, under the authority of an Act of Parliament.

Regulations are the most common type of subordinate legislation. Regulations usually put in place administrative or technical processes or set fees and charges that are required under a specific Act.  For example the National Parks and Wildlife Regulation 2019 sets the fees for breaching rules about taking animals into parks, lighting fires in parks or driving on non-designated roads.
