The GPW is the custodian of a host of government publications: tender bulletins, regulation gazettes, provincial gazettes (excluding the Free State and Western Cape), national gazettes and legal notices. Some are published weekly, other monthly. As publisher and editor of these official communication tools to the general public, the GPW is accountable for their content.
The Government Gazette business unit compiles, edits and typesets the publications before printing and disseminating them in hard copy and publishing them electronically – some weekly, others monthly. View latest gazettes.
Below please find a table listing all the different government gazettes, their frequency and deadlines for submitting notices. By clicking on each gazette you'll find:
National Government publishes the Government Gazette as a tool to communicate messages of national importance to the general public. It contains information of a legal, administrative and general nature. Government Gazettes are published as one of the following:
This is a special edition of the Government Gazette, which contains applications for liquor licences only. It is published in addition to the weekly Government Gazette. Should there be parties wishing to oppose the granting of liquor licences, it is much easier if such notices are contained in a single edition of the gazette only.
Members of public must communicate specific actions to the general public, such as sales in execution, personal name changes and so on, to comply with various stipulations of law. The Legal Gazette contains information of this category.
The Provincial Gazette serves the same purpose as the Government Gazette, however, on the level of the provincial government. That is, it is as a tool to communicate messages of provincial importance to the general public and contains information of a legal, administrative and general nature.
The Tender Bulletin is printed on behalf of the Department of Finance. It provides a summary of all procurement that national government wishes to do, which is of assistance to prospective vendors/ suppliers
Since there are many gazette editions additional to the weekly gazette, the GPW compiles an index of all gazettes published during a month. This is a service to the public, to assist interested parties in keeping track of all editions.
