Annual Report 2022–2023

OQPC reports annually on its progress towards achieving the purposes of the Legislative Standards Act 1992, namely, to ensure that Queensland legislation is of the highest standard; an effective and efficient legislative drafting service is provided for Queensland; and Queensland legislation, and information about it, is readily available in both printed and electronic form.

OQPC's Annual Report 2022–2023 outlines the office's recent achievements in legislative drafting and access to legislation. Highlights for the year include—

  • OQPC has supported wider Path to Treaty initiatives by engaging in legislative co-design on drafting projects, most notably the Path to Treaty Act 2023.

There were 787 reprints of consolidated legislation (152,469 pages), of which 87% were published within 3 days of commencement. 
  • Seven online Queensland legislation website training sessions were delivered to more than 500 people across the public sector and the legislation website received over 10 million webpage views.
