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
Commission and 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
part of 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.
