Superseded class orders
Sunsetting class orders
We issue an instrument to:
- exempt a person(s) from certain provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 or other Acts administered by us
- modify or clarify the operation of certain provisions
- make declarations about a person(s) who is subject to a particular provision.
Class orders are also instruments. (More about class orders)
Instruments are numbered in order of their issue each year. For example, 02/736 was the 736th instrument published in 2002.
- Instruments issued after 1 July 2001 — see the online ASIC Gazette.
- Instruments issued before 1 July 2001 — you can view paper versions of the ASIC Gazette in libraries participating in the Library Deposit Scheme, ie National Library of Australia, State Libraries and publicly funded universities.
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].
