Wednesday 5 July 2017 @ 12.55 p.m.

Legislation publishers and financial professionals alike dread 1 July each year, but for different reasons. For legislation publishers like TimeBase, 1 July each year marks one of the peak periods of legislative activity with huge numbers of commencements, new legislation and consolidations requiring updating and alert notices.

1 July 2017

This year, on 1 July 2017, the TimeBase editorial team processed 554 new commencements and 969 new consolidations resulting from amendments across all nine jurisdictions. This is a huge amount of activity and, along with 1 January each year, is one of those peak periods when all hands are on deck in the TimeBase offices.

Our updates for the last six years across all nine jurisdictions are shown in the below table:
