What are deemed regulations?
Deemed regulations, in the context of the New Zealand Legislation website, are instruments required to be treated as regulations for the purposes of the Regulations (Disallowance) Act 1989, but are not drafted by the PCO (except in special cases) or published in the Statutory Regulations series. They are made primarily 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 legislative instruments.
