The Gazette

The Gazette is the UK's official public record, and is comprised of three publications: The London Gazette (published every weekday), The Belfast Gazette (published on Tuesdays) and The Edinburgh Gazette (published on Fridays).

Many of the notices that are placed in The Gazette are required by law (statutory), but some are published because it is deemed to be in the public's interest that the information is in the public domain. The Gazette is often cited in legislation and considered by the courts and other legal organisations to be the most effective portal to achieve this.

The Gazette is the official home to the Queen's Birthday and New Year honours, which are published on the Queen's official birthday in June and in the New Year. Another is the War Office and Ministry of Defence events, a weekly supplement published on behalf of the forces every Tuesday. The Company Law Supplement is published weekly in all three editions of The Gazette. It details information notified to, or by, the Registrar of Companies.

The first Gazette issue was in 1665 as The Oxford Gazette, and though the nature of its contents has evolved over time, its standing as the official public record has remained. The Gazette has recorded many memorable events in British history, such as the Great Fire of London, the Battle of Waterloo and both World Wars 1and 2.
