List of legislation 

The list below shows you the range of laws administered by NSW Fair Trading within the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation. Accessing any of these Acts will remove you from our website and take you to a database of all NSW's Legislation. The NSW Parliamentary Counsel's Office (PCO) operates this database and is responsible for the accuracy and currency of the information it contains.

If you intend to use the list for legal research, you should be aware that amendments occur from time to time and may not be reflected in the consolidated version of an Act for a short period. The PCO website states that any amendments are usually consolidated within a 5 day period of their commencement. However, to identify fair trading laws that may still be before, or recently approved by the NSW Parliament, you can visit the Parliament House website
