Prosecution-free period in sentences
The obligations of the legislation will be progressively phased in over a three year period to reflect the complexity of, and resources required for, each part of the Bill.
Upon Royal Assent certain parts of the Bill will become active. Other parts will become active at periods of six, 12 and 24 months after Royal Assent. The implementation schedule has been negotiated and designed by industry representatives and government agencies and incorporates the concept of a prosecution-free period. The prosecution-free period affords businesses an additional 12 months to become compliant with that active part of the legislation so long as they are making best endeavours to comply.
