New numbering system for WA subsidiary legislation (24 February 2020)

From the start of 2020, subsidiary legislation and some related instruments published in the Gazette will be allocated a unique identifier, in the format “SL 2020/1”.

Where an instrument needs to be referenced in WA legislation other than by its title, it will be referenced using this unique identifier.

This change is being introduced to simplify the way in which these instruments are referenced, and to ensure that each instrument is uniquely identifiable.

Because more than 1 instrument, or part of an instrument, can appear on the same page in the Gazette, references to page numbers do not always ensure unique identification.

It will also bring WA into line with the way in which comparable Australian jurisdictions identify subsidiary legislation and related instruments.
