The Industrial Registry offers a number of services to assist parties with their matters before the Industrial Court of Queensland and the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission.

If you need any further information about the services listed below, or would like the Industrial Registry to organise a service for a matter, please contact us.

Order a transcript

Hearings before the Court or Commission are recorded by Auscript Australasia Pty Ltd who provide recording and transcription services to the QIRC.

A transcript may be issued by the Industrial Registry in electronic form, free of charge, to a party to the proceeding, or that party's representative.

The Registry will only issue the transcript via email at the request of a party or a party's representative. Please note: A separate order form is required for each proceeding.

To order a transcript:

Auscript owns the copyright of transcripts. Hard copies of transcripts can be obtained from Auscript at a cost. The Registry does keep a copy of the transcript on the relevant case file. By arrangement with the Registry, the transcript of a particular case may be read by practitioners or an interested party except where the Commission has ordered that the transcript is available only to the immediate parties. Some advance notice is required in order to retrieve the case file.

If you are not a party to the matter or a party's representative, further information on obtaining transcripts can be found on the Auscript website or by telephoning 1800 287 274.

Search and copy request

A party to a proceeding or a non-party may make a request for the search and copy of a file or filed documents.

Should you wish to make a request please complete the Search and Copy request form and submit via email to qirc.registry [at]

All requests will be subject to the approval of the Industrial Registrar.

In accordance with schedule 1 of the Industrial Relations (Tribunal) Rules 2011 there are fees that are payable for the inspection of a file, and also for obtaining photocopies of filed documents. This fee can be paid either by cash or cheque.  For more information please refer to page 3 of the Search and copy Request form.

For any other information please contact the registry on 1300592987 or qirc.registry [at] 

Court security

Understanding the nature of threats to the process of justice depends upon information. Identifying those who may have an intention to do harm or disrupt court proceedings and assessing their capability to do so provides the information necessary to measure the risks posed by those circumstances.

Lawyers, government agencies and volunteer and support groups are encouraged to use the court security information report form to advise Queensland Industrial Relations Commission of instances whereby they become aware of a court security concern, risk or threat, and/or whereby additional security measures are being sought for court or commission matters. Details about where to email the completed form are included in the top section of the form.
