1549B(2)  
The amendments made by Schedule 1 to the amending Act do not apply to a benefit given to a financial services licensee, or a representative of a financial services licensee, in relation to a life risk insurance product if:


(a) the life risk insurance product is issued before the commencement day; or


(b) the application for the issue of the life risk insurance product is made before the commencement day and the product is issued within 3 months after the commencement day.
