UFO Research (NSW) was established at a public meeting on 10 November 1991, with this Business Name registered in NSW, Australia until the Association was incorporated.
The group was one of the first UFO groups in Australia to launch a public website in 1995.
On the 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 legal name therefore 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).
