Legislation feeds are an easy way to keep up to date with legislative changes on this website without having to constantly visit the site. When changes to the website are made a legislation feed can notify you and give you a link to the new or changed content. Legislation feeds are also called RSS.
All you need is a feed reader. Most current web browsers have feed readers built in or have plug-ins available. You can also use web-based readers or dedicated software. The legislation feeds are identified by the standard web feed symbol and you can set up as many different web feeds from this website as you need.
Standard legislation feeds
The following standard feeds are available:
- Notification of the making of statutory instruments, Government Gazettes and Bill information. For subscribers to the weekly notification email, this feed can be used instead of that email. The weekly email service will be continued for the time being but it is recommended that subscribers consider changing to the feed, which provides the same information.
- Bills—updates on all consultation drafts of Bills, Bills introduced, amended and passed by Parliament, and Bills assented to.
- New or updated In Force legislation—updates on new, amended or updated Acts, statutory instruments and environmental planning instruments in the In Force collection.
- New As Made legislation—updates when new Acts, statutory instruments and environmental planning instruments are added to the As Made PDF collection.
- New Government Gazettes.
You can make any of the following customised feeds:
- from a search result on the In Force collection you can create a feed to receive updates when the results of the search change
- from the Status Information page of an Act, statutory instrument or environmental planning instrument in the consolidated In Force collection, choose a feed to receive updates when that item of legislation is amended or updated
- from a Bill information page, choose a feed to follow the progress of that particular Bill.
