Defra publications

The subject sections listed on the left are regularly updated with details of new and amended publications that are available either from Defra Publications or from The Stationery Office (TSO), including the latest editions of annual publications.

You can look for individual titles in the Title index or search for keywords or PB codes (entered as PBxxxx with no space between PB and the number) in Word Search.

Please note that for technical reasons most publications previously available from the former Department for Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) have not been incorporated into this listing. You may find that the publication you want is on the Department for Transport website or the Department for Communities and Local Government (, formerly Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM).

If you cannot find the publication you want listed here, you may find it listed in the one of the subject areas of this site, eg Environmental protection, Rural development, Science.

Details of some ex-DETR publications are also available on this site under Environmental protection, Sustainable development or Wildlife & countryside.

See also our pages on Access to Information, and the Forms area of this site, which contains copies of many of the forms and guidance notes which affect Defra's business customers.

We do not publish any UK legislation on this site (with the exception of some draft legislation in our Consultations section). Much current UK legislation is available on HMSO's website at
