The dictionary at the end of this Act is part of this Act.
Note 1 The dictionary at the end of this Act defines certain terms used in this Act, and includes references ("signpost definitions") to other terms defined elsewhere.
For example, the signpost definition ‘ native animal —see the Nature Conservation Act 2014
, section 12.' means that the term ‘native animal' is defined in that section and the definition applies to this Act.
Note 2 A definition in the dictionary (including a signpost definition) applies to the entire Act unless the definition, or another provision of the Act, provides otherwise or the contrary intention otherwise appears (see Legislation Act
, s 155 and s 156 (1)).
