What are Other Instruments?
Other Instruments, in the context of the New Zealand Legislation website, are disallowable instruments under section 38 of the Legislation Act 2012 but are not Legislative Instruments. They are not in general drafted by the PCO. They are made by Ministers, officials, or organisations, rather than the Executive Council on the recommendation of Cabinet. Examples include most land transport rules, civil aviation rules, and a wide variety of other rules, codes, and other instruments.
