Customs Bills History

This part of the archive area is intended for use in circumstances where it might be necessary to establish a sequence in policy changes on legislative provisions.

It should be noted that the final publication of a draft might differ from the original draft circulated in view of the comments received and/or legislative policy considerations.

The area Preparation of Legislation will give you access to current Bills; and current Acts (including the Amendment Acts) can be found under Primary Legislation.

The rewrite process of the Customs and Excise Act, 1964 started as a result of a ministerial decision and the first Draft Bills were released for comment in 2009.

You can follow the whole process since the first release for comment until the promulgation as Acts of Parliament here.
