Executive Council advice sheet template

Below is a template advice sheet that can be downloaded and edited for items submitted to the Executive Council (including for Orders in Council/regulations). Refer to this page for more information about Orders in Council and regulations

The advice sheet must be printed on heavyweight 'goatskin' buff paper and signed by a Minister (note: the advice sheet cannot be signed in the name of an Associate Minister unless that Associate is also a Minister of something else, as only Ministers are Executive Councillors).

The advice sheet should be addressed to the Governor-General, unless the Governor-General is overseas, in which case it should be addressed to the Administrator of the Government

For information on other accompanying documentation required for regulations going to the Executive Council, see the CabGuide section on the Executive Council and the Governor-General.
