This is just instinct, but I think if I could identify an end date for the earlier incarnation of the Commission and a gap in between the two incarnations, Iā€™d make a new heading.  If not, not, though certainly lots of information should be recorded in 670s in the old heading.

Mr. Wilson,

 

It's difficult to ascertain whether there is a period in which there was no Commission. It appears that there was a pause in issuance of annual reports, however.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Corporate body when the law which established it changes

 

Hi Helpful PCC members,

 

I was wondering if there is guidance somewhere on whether or not a corporate body is considered to be a new one (or warrants a new NAR) if the law which put it into force changes, even though the name of the body stays the same. 

 

I have this scenario with the Kenya Law Reform Commission. According to its annual reports:

 

2006, 24th Annual Report: "The KLRC was established on 13th May 1982 by the KLRC Act (Cap.3)"

2014-2015 (no more numbering, although still issued annually): "The Kenya Law Reform Commission is established by the Kenya Law Reform Commission Act, 2013 (no. 19 of 2013) as a successor to the Law Reform Commission, previously established under the repealed Law Reform Commission Act, Cap 3"  

 

So, my questions: does this warrant a new NAR for the Kenya Law Reform Commission, based on the fact that the law which enacted it has changed? Or should the existing NAR (ARN 2431651, n  88270582) be noted to reflect the change? 

 

Also, if I'm reading LC-PCC PS for 11.2.2.14.2 correctly, the variant on this NAR remains valid (Kenya. Law Reform Commission), yes?

 

ā€‹

I appreciate you thoughts and guidance on this matter. Am I overthinking this?

 

Regards,

Alexisā€‹
