Regulations Review Committee Digest

Read the latest edition of the Regulations Review Committee Digest, which covers the work of New Zealand's Regulations Review Committee.

The Regulations Review Committee Digest was first published in 2004. It provides a general overview of the role and functioning of the Regulations Review Committee and synthesises its work into a single, readily accessible source.

The primary aim of the Digest is to summarise the Committee's jurisprudence concerning the nine Standing Order grounds under which it may draw regulations to the attention of the House. In addition, it summarises the Committee's jurisprudence concerning general matters regarding regulations developed in its occasional reports.

The current version of the Digest is as follows:

Dean R Knight and Edward Clark, Regulations Review Committee Digest (7th ed, New Zealand Centre for Public Law, 2020).

The Digest is available as a PDF: The Digestpdf2MB
