Legal Deposit (WA)

Legal deposit was reinstated in Western Australia under the Legal Deposit Act 2012. The Act covers print, audio-visual and digital material, including works published on the Internet. The Legal Deposit Regulations 2013 prescribe how the Act’s provisions operate. Regulations for the deposit of physical items came into effect on 1 January 2014. Further consultation to develop regulations for digital legal deposit will be undertaken in 2014.
