The Legislation

10 Term of extended supervision order

(1) An extended supervision order commences when it is made, or when the offender’s current custody or supervision expires, whichever is the later.
(1A) An extended supervision order expires at the end of: (a) such period (not exceeding 5 years from the day on which it commences) as is specified in the order, or
(b) if the order is suspended for any period, the period specified in paragraph (a) plus each period during which the order is suspended.
(2) An offender’s obligations under an extended supervision order are suspended while the offender is in lawful custody, whether under this or any other Act or law.
(3) Nothing in this section prevents the Supreme Court from making a second or subsequent extended supervision order against the same offender.
