Legislation is laws made by Parliament and comprises:
Acts (also called statutes) which may be amended later by Amending Acts or Amendments
Subordinate or delegated legislation (including regulations, rules, by-laws, ordinances, orders and legislative instruments) drafted by authorised bodies such as government departments, local councils and universities
Finding Legislation by Citation
1. Determine the jurisdiction - indicated at the end of the citation in brackets. For example, Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) is an Act from the Australian (Commonwealth) Parliament.
2. Find the legislation online - go to the database for the relevant jurisdiction. There will be options to browse by legislation type, such as Bill, Act, Delegated Legislation and so on.
This database from SAI Global provides full-text access to all Australian Standards, plus abstracts and contents information for other international standards such as ISO and IEC.
Standards Online is a complete repository of Australian, ISO, IEC, EN, ETSI, NSAI, and JSA records. Charles Sturt's subscription provides the full-text of only Australian Standards. For other Standards, you are presented with an online purchase option.
You can search the collection by title, number, keyword, scope, or publication dates. You can limit your search to Australian Standards only, or search all the Standards databases.
You can view online, print, or save as a PDF.
You will need to have a PDF reader on your device in order to download and read Standards offline.
PDFs will not open in a browser, so you may need to change settings for your browser in order to open the PDFs. For instructions on downloading and accessing PDFs in Google Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, see Accessing PDFs in Standards Online.
Please note that downloaded PDF copies of the Standards will expire after 3 days, so you should get what you need within that time, or obtain the document again.
