What are class orders?

Class orders are instruments that have a wider application.

They usually apply to a class of persons who carry out a particular activity in certain circumstances, eg timeshare scheme operators, corporations conducting market research, operators of managed investment schemes based on syndicate arrangements etc.

When we refer to class orders, to help differentiate them from other instruments, we use the prefix 'CO' before their number. For example, instrument 03/67 is a class order, and is referred to as [CO 03/67].
