12F Lodgment rules

(1) The Registrar-General may make rules (
"lodgment rules" ), not inconsistent with a relevant Act or the regulations under a relevant Act, for or with respect to any of the following:
(a) the lodgment of documents under or for the purposes of a relevant Act, including requirements as to the preparation, form and content of documents and the procedures to be followed in connection with the lodgment of documents,
(b) the procedure for the making of any application in connection with the provision of titling and registry services,
(c) business operating hours for the purposes of the provision of titling and registry services,
(d) any other matter that is required or permitted to be the subject of lodgment rules by a provision of a relevant Act or the regulations under a relevant Act.
Note : Requirements of the lodgment rules are requirements made under this Act. Section 39 of this Act provides for the rejection of documents that do not comply with such a requirement. Section 195B of the Conveyancing Act 1919 makes similar provision.
(2) The lodgment rules cannot make provision for or with respect to matters for or with respect to which conveyancing rules may be determined.
(3) A lodgment rule must be published in the Gazette and commences on the day or days specified in the lodgment rule. Commencement is to be no earlier than 20 business days after the day on which the lodgment rule is published in the Gazette unless the Minister approves of an earlier commencement in a particular case (but no earlier than the date of publication of the lodgment rule in the Gazette).
(4) A lodgment rule may also be published on a website maintained by the Registrar-General or in such other manner as the Registrar-General considers appropriate.
(5) The power to make lodgment rules includes the power to amend or repeal the rules.
(6) In this section:

"document" includes dealing, plan, application, caveat and memorandum.
