I, STEPHAN KARL KNOLL, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, in the State of South Australia, as successor to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, note that:

  • The Motor Vehicles Act 1959 (MV Act) is committed to me.
  • By Instrument of Delegation published in the Government Gazette on 20 June 2013, the then Minister for Transport and Infrastructure delegated to the Minister to whom the Motor Accident Commission Act 1992 is committed (presently the Treasurer) relevant powers and functions exercisable under Part 4 of the MV Act with respect to the compulsory third party insurance scheme established under that Part (CTP Powers and Functions).
  • By Instrument of Delegation published in the Government Gazette on 23 June 2016, the then Minister for Transport and Infrastructure delegated to the Minister to whom the Motor Accident Commission Act 1992 is committed the further powers and functions inserted into the MV Act as a consequence of the Compulsory Third Party Insurance Regulation Act 2016.
  • The Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Third Party Insurance) Amendment Act 2019, which will commence operation on 14 June 2019 (with the operation of some sections suspended until 1 July 2019) will amend Part 4, Sections 99A and 129A of the MV Act, so as to confer further powers and functions on me which are related to the CTP Powers and Functions.
  • Given that relationship it is appropriate that the same Minister be able to exercise both the new powers and functions and the CTP Powers and Functions.

By this Instrument, I, STEPHAN KARL KNOLL, the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government in the State of South Australia, pursuant to section 9 of the Administrative Arrangements Act 1994, hereby delegate to the Minister to whom the Motor Accident Commission Act 1992 is committed the following powers and functions which will be exercisable by me from the commencement of the Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Third Party Insurance) Amendment Act 2019 under Part 4 of the Motor Vehicles Act 1959:

  • the power and function under section 99A(2)(a) of the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 to determine a scheme for the selection of approved insurers by the CTP Regulator in respect of an application for registration of a new motor vehicle;
  • the power and function under section 99A(2)(b)(ii) of the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 to determine a scheme for the selection of approved insurers by the CTP Regulator where a motorist fails to select an approved insurer in the application; and
  • the power and function under section 129A(2) of the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 to approve classes of financial benefits or inducements which may be offered by approved insurers under that section.

This Instrument of Delegation has effect from the day on which it is published in the Government Gazette.

This Instrument of Delegation may be revoked or varied at any time by me by further notice published in the Government Gazette.
