TSO (The Stationery Office) is a British publishing company created in 1996 when the publishing arm of Her Majesty's Stationery Office was privatised.[1] It is the official publisher and the distributor for legislation, command and house papers, select committee reports, Hansard, and the London, Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes, the UK government's three official journals of record.[2] With more than 9,000 titles in print and digital formats published every year, it is one of the UK's largest publishers by volume.[1]

TSO provides services, consultancy, and infrastructure to deliver all aspects of the information lifecycle. TSO developed the website with The National Archives, providing full access to the statute book as open data.[3]

The TSO OpenUp platform is a collection of integrated services available as Software as a Service (SaaS), with the aim of providing a scalable and resilient platform that allows organisations to store, query, and enrich their data.

In 2007, The Stationery Office was bought by business process outsourcing company Williams Lea, of which a majority stake had been acquired by logistics company Deutsche Post in 2006.

In 2014 TSO also began working with the local government sector, beginning with the redevelopment of the Croydon Council internal and external websites.
