Granting powers of exemption
This is a single section from Chapter 16. Read the full chapter here.
Will the exemption be subject to conditions?
Legislation must contain express authority to impose conditions on an exemption.
An exemption may either be granted on a blanket basis or may be subject to specific conditions. The ability to impose conditions on an exemption is a useful tool to ensure that the exemption granted is no broader than is strictly necessary, but the power to impose conditions must be explicitly authorised by the empowering Act. Conditions must also be consistent with the purpose of the Act.
