Tied instruments

Under the Legal Services Directions, certain drafting work is tied to OPC. Agencies must use OPC's drafting services for regulations, Ordinances and regulations of external Territories and Jervis Bay Territory and other legislative instruments made or approved by the Governor‑General.

There is generally no charge to agencies for this tied work.

OPC’s experienced drafters and tailored systems enable OPC to prepare robust and easy‑to‑use instruments to assist agencies in implementing primary legislation.
