According to the Rules Publication Act 1953, a 'statutory rule' means the following:
- a regulation, rule, or by-law made under the authority of an Act by the Governor or by a rule-making authority
- a proclamation or notice, or an order-in-council, order, or other instrument that fixes the date of commencement of an Act or enactment or that repeals or amends
or extends, restricts, varies, modifies, or affects the operation of the provisions, scope, or application of an Act or enactment
- an instrument of a legislative character made in the exercise of the prerogative rights of the Crown and having force in this State.
However, according to the Act a 'statutory rule' does not include a regulation, rule, or by-law, or any other instrument of a legislative character, that is made by a local authority or by a person or body of persons having jurisdiction limited to a district, locality, or part of the State. (Note: for authorised versions of such by-laws by Council, Marine Board and other local Authorities please refer to AOT series AE912)
