Accessing printed legislation

Acts, Bills, and secondary legislation

You can order from the New Zealand Legislation website a commercial print of any Act, Bill, secondary legislation, or Supplementary Order Paper on that website. You can order the current version of the document, or any earlier version that is on the website. For more information, see Ordering a commercial print: buy online.

Before 2014, all the Acts passed in a particular year were published in bound volumes of New Zealand Statutes. Similarly, for secondary legislation, all Statutory Regulations made in a particular year were published in bound volumes of Statutory Regulations. From 5 August 2013 the series contained Legislative Instruments.  The last annual bound volumes published by the PCO were for 2014.

Consolidations—copies of Acts and secondary legislation that incorporate all amendments made to them as at the date of publication of the consolidation—are available from the New Zealand Legislation website (including commercially printed consolidations). In the past, the PCO also published consolidations (known as reprints) in traditional hard copy format. More information about consolidations »

Other secondary legislation

For printed secondary legislation that was drafted by agencies other than the PCO, contact the relevant agency. The legislation may also be published in the New Zealand Gazette.
