UFO Research (NSW) was established on 10 November 1991.

The group was one of the first UFO groups in Australia to launch a public website in 1995.

On 26 April 2007, UFO Research (NSW) became an Incorporated (Inc) Association (INC9887379) under the New South Wales (NSW) Government, Australia, Associations Incorporation Act 2009

The registered name was changed to UFO Research (NSW) Incorporated.  The Association is governed by rules that comply this Act and are documented in our Constitution (640 kB pdf document).  The Act is administered in NSW by Fair Trading.  Under the tax legislation in Australia the Association is assessed as a non-profit company (Australian Tax Office Guide NAT 7967).

Following incorporation UFO Research launched on Facebook as Exopolitics Sydney and subsequently on  Meetup  as Exopolitics Sydney.
