953A(1)  

 View history reference
In this Subdivision:

defective , in relation to a disclosure document or statement, means:


(a) if the disclosure document or statement is a Financial Services Guide, a Supplementary Financial Services Guide, or is information or a statement required by subsection 941C(5), 941C(7) or 941D(2):


(i) there is a misleading or deceptive statement in the disclosure document or statement; or

(ii) if it is a Financial Services Guide - there is an omission from the Financial Services Guide of material required by section 942B or 942C; or

(iii) if it is a Supplementary Financial Services Guide that is given for the purposes of paragraph 941F(d) - there is an omission from the Supplementary Financial Services Guide of material required by that paragraph; or

(iv) if it is information or a statement required by subsection 941C(5), 941C(7) or 941D(2) - there is an omission from the document or statement of material required by that subsection; or


(b) if the disclosure document or statement is a Statement of Advice, or is information, a statement or a copy of a record required by subsection 946AA(5), 946B(3), (6) or (8) or 946C(2):


(i) there is a misleading or deceptive statement in the disclosure document or statement; or

(ii) if it is a Statement of Advice - there is an omission from the Statement of Advice of material required by section 947B, 947C or 947D; or

(iii) if it is information, a statement or a copy of a record required by subsection 946AA(5), 946B(3), (6) or (8) or 946C(2) - there is an omission from the information, statement or copy of material required by that subsection or section.

Note: In determining whether a Financial Services Guide is defective, the effect of section 943D must be taken into account (section 943D takes information and statements in a Supplementary Financial Services Guide to be included in the Financial Services Guide it supplements).

disclosure document or statement means:


(a) a Financial Services Guide; or


(b) a Supplementary Financial Services Guide; or


(c) a Statement of Advice; or


(d) information, a statement or a copy of a record required by subsection 941C(5) or (7), 941D(2), 946AA(5), 946B(3), (6) or (8) or 946C(2).

953A(1A)  

 View history reference
For the avoidance of doubt, if section 941E (information must be up to date) is not complied with in relation to a Financial Services Guide, then, for the purposes of the definition of defective in subsection (1):


(a) if the circumstance constituting the non-compliance is that particular information included in the Financial Services Guide is not as up to date as section 941E requires it to be - the information so included constitutes a misleading statement in the Financial Services Guide; and


(b) if the circumstance constituting the non-compliance is a failure to include particular information that was not previously required to be included in the Financial Services Guide - the failure to include the information constitutes an omission from the Statement of material required by section 942B or 942C.

Note: The effect of section 943D (information in a Supplementary Financial Services Guide is taken to be contained in the Financial Services Guide it supplements) must be taken into account in determining whether section 941E is complied with in relation to a Financial Services Guide.

953A(2)  

In this Subdivision, a reference (including in the definitions in subsection (1)) to a document or statement of a kind referred to in a paragraph of the definition of disclosure document or statement in subsection (1) includes a reference to something purporting to be a document or statement of that kind.
