The activities of the Auckland Medical Aid
Trust are governed by legislation - various statutes, statutory
regulations, and public and private acts available free via the Internet at http://www.legislation.govt.nz.
The Charities Act (2005) introduced the Charities Commission (a body for the
registration and monitoring
of charities in New Zealand), although subsequent amendments disestablished the
provided for a Ministerial appointed Board with functions, duties, and powers
relating to the registration
and deregistration of charitable entities. The Act is now administered by Charities Services as
The Department of Internal Affairs.
The following are some of the main Acts of Parliament that establish the
parameters for the activities of the
Trust and its subsidiaries.
