Simplify Day 2016 Update

14 September 2017

The Statutes Amendment and Repeal (Simplify) Bill 2016 contained amendments to 26 Acts, including to the Electronic Transactions Act 2000, the Motor Vehicles Act 1959, the Survey Act 1992, the Authorised Betting Operations Act 2000 and the Second-hand Vehicles Dealer Act 1995. The Bill was introduced into Parliament on 15 November 2016, and on the same day the Premier announced that Simplify Day would become an annual event. On the inaugural Simplify Day, the Governor made seven sets of Regulations on issues such as fisheries, motor vehicles and road traffic.

The Simplify Bill was passed by the South Australian Parliament on 2 March 2017 and was assented on 15 March 2017.

As of today, all the provisions contained in the inaugural Simplify Bill and Regulations have commenced, except those abolishing the need to have heavy vehicle registration label stickers, which will take effect on 1 November 2017.
