This Compendium does not, however, contain the various forms and filings prescribed by the legislation; these are available on request from Conyers Dill & Pearman.

While every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, and it is believed that the only errors in this reprint are those contained in the statutes themselves (which errors have been faithfully reproduced), no responsibility is assumed for the content and reference is made to the original for an authoritative statement of the law.
