Section 30 – Orders and regulations

96.Subsection (1) provides that any power of the Scottish Minister to make orders or regulations under the Act is exercisable by statutory instrument, while subsection (2) clarifies that all such powers include power to make different provision for different cases and also power to make ancillary provision.

97.Under subsection (3), as read with paragraphs 4 and 5 of schedule 3 to the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010, a statutory instrument containing orders or regulations under the Act is subject to the negative procedure of the Scottish Parliament. However, a number of provisions are excepted from this rule – orders under sections 2(3), 14(3)(c), 28(1) and 29(1) and regulations under section 26(1) are instead subject to the affirmative procedure of the Scottish Parliament, while an order under section 33(2) providing for an earlier commencement date than 1 October 2012 is not subject to any procedure.
