Restatement and Revision of Act

A restated or revised Act is an administrative consolidation of that Act. It brings together in a single text all amendments and changes to an Act, making the law more accessible for all users.


The Statute Law (Restatement) Act 2002 provides that the Attorney General may certify the text of a restatement, which allows it to be used as prima facie evidence of the law in question. The Law Reform Commission has prepared a body of restatements under its two programmes of restatement and it intends to ensure that this work is maintained up-to-date on an ongoing basis. Because it may not be practicable to have each update certified, the Commission is making available uncertified restatements and will refer to these as Revised Acts. The term ‘Revised Acts’ is often used in other States, such as Australia and New Zealand to describe such administrative consolidations of Acts. (Source Law Reform Commission)

For more information on the programme of restatements see the Law Reform Commission.
