Publication scheme

Our publication scheme routinely makes information available from the Department of Justice and Attorney‑General. We have developed this section to give you greater access to information. You can download documents from the publication scheme, or you can make a request to access them. In the publication scheme, information is grouped into the 7 classes below.

You have the right to complain if information is not available in our publication scheme. To do this, you can lodge a complaint by email to We manage complaints according to our Client complaint management policy. The policy allows for you to complain anonymously if you wish. Any personal information you provide will be used to assess and respond to your complaint and will be managed in accordance with the Information Privacy Act 2009. Email messages may be monitored by the department’s information technology staff for system troubleshooting, maintenance and appropriate usage.
