In the lead up to Anzac Day, the AADA has received correspondence from the Hon Darren Chester MP, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs in relation to the use of the word ‘Anzac’.
The correspondence requested that AADA make members aware of the Protection of Word ‘Anzac’ Regulations which prevent the use of the word ‘Anzac’ in from being used in an official or corporate manner without permission from the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs. For example, this includes selling or producing goods, fundraising, exhibitions, games and sporting events.
Members are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the regulations which are available on the Department of Veterans’ Affairs website. To apply for permission to use the word ‘Anzac’, a simple application form is also available on the website. There is no cost to apply for a permit.
