The regulations may prescribe a covenant to be included in the governing rules of a superannuation entity and, if the governing rules of such a superannuation entity do not contain a covenant to the effect of the prescribed covenant, those rules are taken to contain a covenant to that effect. Prescribed covenants may deal with same matters as other requirements

(a) a matter to which a covenant in sections 52 to 53 relates; or


(b) a matter to which a provision of this Act relates. But prescribed covenants must be capable of operating concurrently with other requirements

54A(3)  
However, a covenant prescribed under subsection (1) must be capable of operating concurrently with:


(a) all the covenants referred to in sections 52 to 53 ; and


(b) this Act.

54A(4)  


The regulations may specify that a covenant prescribed under subsection (1) is to form part of the enhanced trustee obligations, or the enhanced director obligations, for MySuper products or eligible rollover funds.
