SECTION 1549B   APPLICATIONS OF AMENDMENTS RELATING TO LIFE RISK INSURANCE PRODUCTS  

1549B(1)  
Subject to subsections (2), (3) and (4), the amendments made by Schedule 1 to the amending Act apply to a benefit given to a financial services licensee, or a representative of a financial services licensee, under an arrangement entered into before, on or after the commencement day.

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.

Note: This means that if a benefit is given in relation to a group of life risk insurance products, some of which were issued before the commencement day and some after, the products issued before the commencement day, or in circumstances covered by paragraph (2)(b), would be ignored for the purposes of applying the amendments.

1549B(3)  
The regulations may prescribe circumstances in which the amendments made by Schedule 1 to the amending Act apply, or do not apply, to a benefit given to a financial services licensee or a representative of a financial services licensee.

1549B(4)  
Despite any other provision of this section or the regulations, 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, to the extent that the operation of those amendments would result in an acquisition of property (within the meaning of paragraph 51(xxxi) of the Constitution) from a person otherwise than on just terms (within the meaning of that paragraph of the Constitution).
