Compilation No. 17 Compilation date: 21/10/16 Registered: 7/11/16

the governing body of the association;

commits an offence against this section and is punishable upon

Note: For strict liability, see section 6.1 of the Criminal Code.

(3) A person shall not be convicted of an offence against this section in

respect of the use of an abbreviation of the name of an international

organisation to which this Act applies if the use occurred in such

circumstances or in relation to such matters as to be unlikely to be

taken to imply any connexion with the organisation, unless the

connexion.

(a) either:

(i) the organisation is established by an instrument to

which 2 or more countries are parties; or

(ii) an instrument to which Australia and one or more other

countries are parties recognises the organisation as

having international legal personality; and

(b) it appears to the Minister that the provisions of this Act other

than this section do not, or may not, apply in relation to the

organisation, but that it is desirable that juridical personality

and one or more legal capacities should be conferred on the

organisation.

personality and such legal capacities as are necessary for the

granted those privileges and immunities.

Division 23 of the GST Act in that capacity.

12C Organisations that are bodies corporate are not Commonwealth

entities

If the regulations provide that an organisation is a body corporate,

then, despite paragraph 10(1)(d) of the Public Governance,

Performance and Accountability Act 2013, the organisation is not a

Commonwealth entity for the purposes of that Act.

be prescribed, or necessary or convenient to be prescribed for

carrying out or giving effect to this Act.

(2) Regulations under this Act may be expressed to commence from a

day specified in a written determination made by the Minister

under this subsection for the purposes of the commencement of

those regulations. If the purpose or object underlying those

regulations is to implement an international instrument (whether or

not that purpose is expressly stated in those regulations), the day

must not be earlier than the day on which the instrument becomes

effective for Australia.

(3) Subsection (2) has effect despite anything in the Legislation Act

2003.

(4) A determination under subsection (2) is a legislative instrument.
