Serving legal documents on ASIC

Where to serve legal documents

If ASIC is a party to litigation or proceedings, legal documents (including subpoenas) should be served at the address for service nominated by ASIC in those proceedings.

If ASIC has not nominated an address, or is not a party to litigation or proceedings, they should be served at the Legal Division of the Enforcement and Policy Office of the state or territory in which the proceedings were issued (irrespective of the state or territory in which the parties are incorporated or carry on business).

In litigation or proceedings which do not involve ASIC, you may wish to use documents stored on the ASCOT or DOCIMAGE systems. In this case, you should ask us for a certified copy of the documents under s1274 of the Corporations Act through an ASIC Service Centre , instead of issuing a subpoena. (See Regulatory Guide 17 Fees for subpoenas).

Regulatory Guide 18 Serving legal documents on ASIC guides officers of companies and other business enterprises and their advisers about serving documents on ASIC.
