Producing official publications

Find guidance on publishing for government organisations, including producing and publishing Command, House of Commons and un-numbered Act papers such as annual reports and accounts, policy papers, government responses and reviews.

Our publishing guidance is designed to help those working on official government publications, particularly those who are new to publishing.

Government publications, in print or digital form, should include appropriate copyright and re-use statements. This section explains where to use these statements.

All local authority-funded public libraries are eligible to receive a subsidy on official publications. The subsidy is given to facilitate public access to parliamentary and government materials and legislation that is not available online.
