(b) matters associated with the assessment or taxation of those costs.
(2) In particular, the regulations may make provision for or with respect to any matter for or in connection with which provision is made by the legal costs legislation (as defined in section 3A of the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014 ).
(3) Regulations for the purposes of this Division may adopt, with or without modification, any of the provisions of the legal costs legislation.
