EVIDENCE ACT 2011 (NO. 12 OF 2011) - SECT 3


The dictionary at the end of this Act is part of this Act.

Note 1     The dictionary at the end of this Act defines certain terms used in this Act, and includes references ("signpost definitions") to other terms defined elsewhere.

For example, the signpost definition ‘ Commonwealth record —see the Evidence Act 1995 (Cwlth), dictionary.' means that the term ‘Commonwealth record' is defined in that dictionary and the definition applies to this Act.

Note 2     A definition in the dictionary (including a signpost definition) applies to the entire Act unless the definition, or another provision of the Act, provides otherwise or the contrary intention otherwise appears (see Legislation Act, s 155 and s 156 (1)).

Note 3     This section differs from the Commonwealth Act and NSW Act.
