Statutory condition--notification of certain offences

15 Statutory condition--notification of certain offences

(1) This rule specifies offences for the purposes of section 51 of the Uniform Law, as referred to in section 51(1)(a) of that Law. Convictions for these offences are required to be notified to the designated local regulatory authority within 7 days.
(2) Summary offences are prescribed for those purposes, but only in relation to the requirement to notify a conviction.
(3) However, subrule (2) does not apply to the following summary offences arising under transport or traffic legislation--
(a) offences relating to the parking of vehicles, or
(b) offences relating to the driving or operation of vehicles, unless the offence concerned is a notifiable summary offence under subrule (4).
(4) A
"notifiable summary offence" is any of the following summary offences under transport or traffic legislation for which the offender is convicted--
(a) an offence where the court has sentenced the offender to a term of imprisonment,
(b) an offence that has a maximum penalty of imprisonment of 6 months or more,
(c) an offence where the court has ordered licence disqualification on conviction,
(d) an offence, involving driving or operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, under--
(i) the Road Transport Act 2013 of New South Wales, or
(ii) the Road Safety Act 1986 of Victoria (excluding section 49(1)(c), (ca), (d) and (e)).
(5) In this rule,
"summary offence" means an offence against a law of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory, other than a serious offence or a tax offence.
Note 1 : The terms "serious offence" and "tax offence" are respectively defined in section 6 of the Uniform Law. Charges and convictions for those offences are separately required to be notified under section 51(1)(a) of that Law.
Note 2 : Subrule (4)(d) excludes an offence under section 49(1)(c), (ca), (d) or (e) of the Road Safety Act 1986 of Victoria. Such an offence may nevertheless be a notifiable summary offence if it is covered by subrule (4)(a), (b) or (c).
