How the Bureau announces changes to its services

The Bureau has a range of processes to inform the public, industry groups and other service providers about changes to our routine information and services.

Frequently services are created, removed or altered in line with community feedback and advances in science and technology. Nominally the Bureau provides a minimum of 30 days notice prior to implementation of service changes.

Unexpected interruptions to routine services will be reported whenever possible.

Notification of changes are communicated in a number of ways including:

  • Announcements in this page and other related web pages
  • Service announcements on respective telephone, fax and radio services
  • Announcements in relevant magazines and newspapers.
  • Details within the specific routine product that is to be changed
  • Correspondence with established consultative groups and other weather service providers
