(b) other documents, except certificates of title and office copies of court order, that:
(i) are required by or under this or any other Act to be lodged with those plans, or
(ii) are of a class prescribed by the regulations made under this Act as documents that may be lodged in electronic form.
(2) A reference in this Act:
(a) to a plan or another document includes a reference to an electronic data file containing a plan or another document in an electronic form, and
(b) to the lodging of a plan or another document includes a reference to the electronic lodging of a plan or another document in an electronic form approved by the Registrar-General, and
(c) to a sheet of a plan or another document that is in electronic form, is a reference to a sheet on which the whole or part of the plan or other document would be reproduced if the plan or other document were converted to hard copy form without re-pagination.
(3) If a plan is lodged electronically, all other documents that are required to be lodged with the plan must also be lodged electronically in an electronic form approved by the Registrar-General, except:
(a) certificates of title and office copies of court orders, and
(b) any other documents excepted from this requirement by regulations under this or any other Act or by the Registrar-General.
(4) Any signature, seal, certificate, consent or other approval required to authenticate, or to authorise the registration or recording of, a plan proposed to be lodged in electronic form is to be endorsed on an approved form for signatures. When the plan is lodged, that form must also be lodged electronically in an electronic form approved by the Registrar-General.
(5) This Act applies to and in respect of plans and other documents lodged in electronic form in the same way as it applies to other plans and documents, subject to any modifications prescribed by this Act or the Conveyancing Act 1919 or the regulations under either of those Acts.
