Federal Register of Legislation

Known issues

Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve bugs and issues on the new Register. To see if your issue has already been reported, please view the list of known issues.

How to get print copies

Printed versions of most documents on the Federal Register of Legislation can be ordered using the "Buy print copy” tab. Special orders can also be made by contacting the current print on demand provider, LitSupport (TIMG) on 07 3223 9225 or by email.

How to order individual titles - Australian Customers

If a printed copy is able to be ordered a "Order print copy" button is available at the document level. Copies are printed from the authorised version in black and white, and will generally appear as they do on screen (so some older documents may be printed with speckles or slightly out of square).

Copies are produced as either A4 or B5 size, depending on the size of the original document, with a cardboard cover and stapled or perfect bound. To ensure that the cost remains as low as possible, standard covers are produced in black and white and they will only have the title on the spine if they are 144 pages or more. There are a number of options available at an additional cost and these options can be selected when placing an order. Coloured covers and artwork can be ordered by contacting the Print on Demand provider directly.

Payment can be made via a secure online payment site with Visa, MasterCard or by invoice. If you are likely to place multiple orders you can create an account to save details such as your delivery address.

Delivery options include normal and express post or free collection is available at the LitSupport Offices in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland. For details of courier delivery please contact LitSupport (TIMG) on 07 3223 9225 or by email.

How to get certified copies of legislation

If a version of legislation on the Register is already authorised then the version is taken to be a reliable source of information by a court or tribunal unless proven to the contrary.

If you do require a certified copy of a version of legislation, the Office of Parliamentary Counsel (OPC) can provide this for a fee. For more information about the fee and how to request a certified copy please go to the OPC website.
