This section lists the changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act, associated Parts and Chapters where applicable.

This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing.
