This Order, among other things, makes a transitional provision so that any references to “the Commission” or the “Crofting Commission” in the provisions of the Crofting Reform (Scotland) Act commenced by this Order are to be read as references to the Crofters Commission until the Crofters Commission is renamed the Crofting Commission. It also makes a transitional provision regarding consent from the Crofters Commission for divisions of owner-occupied crofts and makes saving provisions with regard to investigations into absent crofters.
