You can review the amendments in the update tabs when you navigate to the individual sections of the legislation. For example, if you go to regulation 239 of the Dangerous Goods Safety (Road and Rail Transport of Non-Explosives) Regulations 2007 and click on the update tab, you will see a redlined explanation of the amendment. Unless otherwise noted, information under the legislation tab is current legislation.

Also note, that new parts of the legislation (to take effect from 1 January) are set out in the “tree view” on the right hand side of the page. Relevant parts are followed by the notation “(this section takes effect from 1 January 2013)”.

If you have any problems reviewing the information or would like an online demonstration of the database, contact me by email at
