New Zealand Parliament
Statutory regulations now have a new name and a new abbreviation. From 2014, what were formerly SR’s or statutory regulations, orders in council and other items are now officially called Legislative Instruments.
All new Legislative Instruments will have an 'LI' reference number, eg LI 2014/37 rather than SR 2014/37. The new format for reference numbers appears in search and browse results on the New Zealand Legislation website for Legislative Instruments made from January 2014 onwards.
