Transcripts and recordings
The proceedings in Queensland courts and tribunals are generally recorded and produced in a written transcript.
On Friday 22 February 2013, the Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie announced the appointment of Auscript Australasia Pty Ltd to provide recording and transcription services to Queensland Courts, the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission. Proceedings are recorded in compliance with the Recording of Evidence Act 1962.
Requests for copies of a record or document of a proceeding heard in a closed court, including the Childrens Court and Domestic and Family Violence matters, may require Ministerial or Chief Executive approval under the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 and the Justices Act 1886.
All enquiries in relation to transcripts and recordings, including closed court proceedings, can be made directly to Auscript Australasia Pty Ltd.
