Assembly Papers

The ‘White Book’ will be published from late September. An electronic copy of the White Book will be emailed out to all registered Commissioners. The papers that form the White Book are the working papers of the 2018 General Assembly. They are not officially part of our decision-making until they are agreed to at the Assembly.  We would strongly urge Commissioners to consider the environment and use an electronic version of the White Book while you are attending Assembly. For those with access to a home or office printer, you will be able to print a hard copy from your email should this be required.


Download the White Book

To download the White Book, you will need to enter the password you were emailed in early September by the Assembly Administrator. (If you didn’t receive an email, please email and the details will be resent to you.)

Late papers and supplementary information will be available upon entering the password you were issued

If you require a copy of the White Book printed for you, please request this when you enrol. Some copies will also be available at Assembly for registered Commissioners and Associates.


The Assembly venue has free WIFI access so we encourage you to use your tablet or laptop during Assembly if you don’t need the full printed version. (It would save time to download the document to your preferred GA device). This will help us to save on printing and postage costs and will assist us also in reducing waste and caring for creation. Multi-boxes will be provided on the tables for those who need to “plug in”.


For those who are unable to attend Assembly, links to Assembly News and media releases will be posted during GA. To sign up for email updates of Assembly News please click here. (see box on right-hand side of page)


Assembly papers are intended for Commissioners only and must not be distributed to other parties, including the media. All media enquiries should be referred to Communications either by phone 027 455 0098 or via email.
