of an EBA may not be the same as delivery of a bank accepted bill of exchange under the Bills of Exchange Act.

(ii) the Bills of Exchange Act is a Commonwealth Act which grants and guarantees rights of title, enforcement and
negotiability to instruments which qualify as bills of exchange under the Act.

(iii) an EBA is not a bill of exchange unless and until it is withdrawn from the Austraclear Limited system in
accordance with the Operating Rules of Austraclear Limited AND the withdrawn EBA satisfies the requirements of
a bill of exchange under the Bills of Exchange Act.
