Summary of Chapter 16A

Chapter 16A sets out the requirements for consent to the application of Division 12A of Part VII of the Act to a case and the additional procedures for certain trials to which Division 12A of Part VII of the Act applies.

Division 12A of Part VII of the Act applies to proceedings:

*     that come wholly or partly under Part VII of the Act, or any other proceedings which involve the court's jurisdiction under the Act if the parties in those proceedings consent to Division 12A applying to those proceedings; and

*     that were commenced by application:

      (a)     on or after 1 July 2006; or

      (b)     before 1 July 2006 if the parties to the proceedings consent, and the court grants permission (the court's permission may be sought in accordance with rule 12.04 of these Rules).

The rules in Chapter 1 relating to the court's general powers apply in all cases and override all other provisions in these Rules.

If a rule in another Chapter (other than Chapter 1) conflicts with a rule in this Chapter, the rule in this Chapter applies.

A word or expression used in this Chapter may be defined in the dictionary at the end of these Rules.
