Referencing New Zealand Legislation
The Publication Manual provides guidelines for referencing US laws/statutes only. As such, there are no definitive APA rules for referencing New Zealand legislation, legal cases, etc. Therefore, this guide uses the New Zealand Law Foundation's New Zealand Law Style Guide (3rd ed.) to reference parliamentary and legal material. You can access New Zealand legislation here.
