Jurisdiction

With the exception of offences committed by individuals under s 64 (see s 64(4)), proceedings for an offence under the Act or the regulations are to be dealt with summarily before the Local Court: s 185(1). Proceedings may instead be dealt with summarily before the Supreme Court in its summary jurisdiction: s 185(2).

The maximum penalty that may be imposed by the Local Court in proceedings for an offence (subject to ss 64 and 65) is 100 pu (in the case of a corporation) and 50 pu (in any other case): s 185(4).

Offences committed under ss 64 and 65 by an individual are indictable offences: ss 64(2) and 65(2). Offences under ss 64 or 65 by a corporation are to be dealt with summarily.
