Temporary accommodation

The PCO has moved temporarily out of its usual accommodation, the Reserve Bank Building, while asbestos issues in the building are addressed. Staff are being accommodated elsewhere, with most in the parliamentary campus.

PCO functions are continuing as normal. While staff can be contacted by either email or phone, there have been intermittent issues with call forwarding, so *please email if you have any difficulty getting through.


If you have comments, questions, or complaints about the PCO or this website, please get in touch with us using the details above.

If you have questions relating to legislation or the work of the PCO, our Frequently asked questions may give you the answer you are looking for.

You can also use the New Zealand Relay Service (NZ Relay) to contact us. NZ Relay is a telecommunications service for people who are deaf, hearing-impaired, deaf-blind, or speech-impaired.
