Application for revocation of the designation

A designated entity or a third party with an interest in the designation can apply to the Prime Minister for revocation of the designation (s 34 TSA).

An application must be based on the grounds set out at s 34(3) TSA. Those are:

(a) That the designation should not stand because the entity concerned does not satisfy the test stated in s 20(1) or (3) (for interim designations) or s 22(1) or (3) (for final designations);
or
(b) That the entity concerned is no longer involved in any way in acts of the kind that made, or that would make, the entity eligible for designation.

Applications should be directed to:

Prime Minister
Executive Wing
Parliament Buildings
Wellington 6160

The TSA also allows a designation to be judicially reviewed (s 33).
