  • Just In Case Of Doubt

    27 March at 17:08 from atlas

    I've been getting enquiries from people who are NOT REGISTERED or LICENSED. To anyone out there in doubt of the penalties for doing illegal work see below:

    http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1992/0122/latest/DLM2863981.html?&

    Offences for actions or omissions likely to cause serious harm or significant property damage
    • (1)Every person commits an offence if—

      • (a)the person takes an action knowing that the action is reasonably likely to cause serious harm to any person or significant property damage; and

      • (b)the action is contrary to a provision of this Act; and

      • (c)the person fails to take all practicable steps to prevent the serious harm or significant property damage.

      (2)Every person commits an offence if—

      • (a)the person fails to take an action knowing that the failure to take the action is reasonably likely to cause serious harm to any person or significant property damage; and

      • (b)the person is required by this Act to take the action; and

      • (c)the person fails to take all practicable steps to prevent the serious harm or significant property damage.

      (3)Every person who commits an offence under this section is liable on conviction on indictment to—

      • (a)imprisonment for a term of not more than 2 years; or

      • (b)a fine of not more than $100,000 in the case of an individual, or $500,000 in the case of a body corporate; or

      • (c)both.

      (4)A person charged with an offence under this section may be convicted of an offence under any other section in this Act as if the person had been charged under that section.

      (5)To avoid doubt, a person required by this section to take all practicable steps is required to take those steps only in respect of circumstances that the person knows, or ought reasonably to know, about.
