Financial Services Reform Amendment Act 2003 (141 of 2003)
Schedule 2 Other amendments of the Corporations Act 2001
96K After subsection 1022A(1)
(1A) For the avoidance of doubt, if section 1012J (information must be up to date) is not complied with in relation to a Product Disclosure Statement, then, for the purposes of the definition of defective in subsection (1):
(a) if the circumstance constituting the non-compliance is that particular information included in the Product Disclosure Statement is not as up to date as section 1012J requires it to be - the information so included constitutes a misleading statement in the Product Disclosure Statement; and
(b) if the circumstance constituting the non-compliance is a failure to include particular information that was not previously required to be included in the Product Disclosure Statement - the failure to include the information constitutes an omission from the Statement of material required by section 1013C.
Note: The effect of section 1014D (information in a Supplementary Product Disclosure Statement is taken to be contained in the Product Disclosure Statement it supplements) must be taken into account in determining whether section 1012J is complied with in relation to a Product Disclosure Statement.
