Accessing online legislation

New Zealand Legislation website

The New Zealand Legislation website provides access to up-to-date Acts, PCO-drafted secondary legislation, Bills, and Supplementary Order Papers. It provides official copies of Acts and PCO-drafted secondary legislation.

See What's on the site and how it works for more information on what the New Zealand Legislation website does and doesn't provide, how often it is updated, and which versions of legislation on the site are official. Note that not all secondary legislation is published on the New Zealand Legislation website.

All legislation on the New Zealand Legislation website is also available in XML format through data.govt.nz, together with the DTDs associated with the XML data.

Other online sources of legislation

Bills and Supplementary Order Papers published since the New Zealand Legislation website went live are provided by the New Zealand Parliament website by linking to the New Zealand Legislation website.
