Comparison Guide

The structure and wording of the 2018 Act is substantially different from the 1996 Act. The wording has been modernised and all the sectional number references are new.


We've developed a Comparison guide that compares both Acts section by section.

You can either download the PDF or use the search tool below.  Type in a section number or schedule to get both the 1996 and 2018 section schedule numbers or title.
