Name and machinery of government changes
The Registrar's office changed it's name on 1 May 2008. Publications and information produced before then may use our previous names, ORAC and ORATSIC.
Publications produced before 18 September 2013 may refer to the Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA). Administrative Arrangements Orders were issued on 18 September 2013. Functions previously delivered by FaHCSIA are now delivered by the Department of Social Services and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
