Period expressed in months

                   In these Regulations, a period expressed in months and dating from an event, ends:

                     (a)  on the day, in the relevant subsequent month, which has the same number as the day of the event; or

                     (b)  if the relevant subsequent month has no day with the same number--on the last day of the month.

Note:          This provision expresses a contrary intention to section 2G and subsection 36(1) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 , and is in accordance with the Madrid Protocol.  The difference between the two occurs when the initiating event is on the last day of a calendar month, which has fewer days than the month in which the period ends.  For example, a period of 3 months from an event on 30 September ends on 30 December under this rule; it would end on 31 December under the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 provisions.
