Legislation

The Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Act 2002

The Civil Defence Emergency Management Act (CDEM Act) 2002 came into effect on 1 December 2002. It replaced the Civil Defence Act 1983.

CDEM Act 2002 - Principal Provisions

The CDEM Act 2002 updates and redefines the duties, functions and powers of central government, local government, emergency services, lifeline utilities and the general public.

For more information or to read the CDEM Act 2002 in full see the Ministry of Civil Defence website.

Hawke's Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Plan

Under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002 every CDEM Group must prepare and approve a Civil Defence Emergency Management Plan (CDEM Plan). These plans must state and provide for:

  • the local authorities that have united to establish the CDEM Group
  • the hazards and risks to be managed by the Group
  • the civil defence emergency management necessary to manage hazards and risks
  • the objectives of the plan and the relationship of each objective to the National Civil Defence Emergency Management Strategy
  • the apportionment between local authorities of liability for the provision of financial and other resources for the activities of the Group, and the basis for that apportionment
  • the arrangements for declaring a state of emergency in the area of the Group
  • the arrangements for co-operation and co-ordination with other Groups.
