Notice codes for all Gazette notices

Many notices that are placed in The Gazette are required by law (statutory), and many others are published because it is deemed to be in the public interest that the information they contain be made available in the public domain. 

As the official public record, The Gazette is often cited in legislation and is considered by the courts and other legal organisations to be the most effective portal to achieve this.

As a researcher, you can use these notice codes to filter your search results if you are looking for a specific type of notice.

As an organisational notice placer, you will need to identify which code applies to your notice when submitting for publication. When registering for a submission account you will be asked to select a business type which dictates which notice codes you are authorised to place. A list of business types an associated notice codes can be found here

Below are all the notice codes relating to different notice types that can be published in The Gazette. Company Law Supplement codes can be found at the end of this list.
