    (1)     This section applies if—

        (a)     a Ramsar wetland management plan for a Ramsar wetland is in force (the existing plan ); and

        (b)     the conservator considers that minor amendments to the existing plan are appropriate.

    (2)     The conservator—

        (a)     may prepare a new draft Ramsar wetland management plan for the wetland, incorporating the minor amendments into the existing plan; and

        (b)     need not comply with the requirements in this part; and

        (c)     may submit the new draft Ramsar wetland management plan to the Minister for approval.

    (3)     If the conservator submits a new draft Ramsar wetland management plan to the Minister for approval, the Minister must—

        (a)     approve the plan; or

        (b)     reject the plan.

Note     The new draft Ramsar wetland management plan approved by the Minister is a Ramsar wetland management plan and is a disallowable instrument (see  s 198).

    (4)     In this section:

"minor amendment", of a Ramsar wetland management plan, means an amendment that will improve the effectiveness or technical efficiency of the plan without changing the substance of the plan.

Examples
