ABLIS - Beta Release

The ABLIS Beta phase has been completed and the following outcomes have been achieved:

  • Using standard web service protocols, APIs have been developed and integrated with the ABLIS Beta user interface to demonstrate end user functionality.
  • These APIs have been developed to enable ABLIS search functionality which provides users with refined lists of government compliance and advisory information relevant to their business type, location and their answers to questions. The APIs have been developed to cater for searches encompassing:
    • all types of business activities,
    • all locations in Australia, and
    • all questions and answers.
  • A modern, user-centred and responsive user interface that can be accessed from common browsers and from a range of devices, including mobiles and tablets.
  • Intuitive search functions enabling users to easily find their business activity and location to commence a search.
  • A modern, flexible and accurate business intelligence and reporting capability.
  • A feedback mechanism for users to inform the Beta development phase of the ABLIS project.

The Australian Business Licence and Information Service (ABLIS) helps business operators and people considering starting a business. ABLIS can identify relevant state, territory, local and Australian government licences, permits, approvals, regulations and codes of practice, allowing you to obtain detailed information and manage compliance obligations.

ABLIS is a national service delivered by a partnership of Australian, State and Territory Governments:
