All gifts received by Defence SA and its staff are included on the Defence SA Gifts and Benefits Register.

The following gestures are not required to be registered:
- Gifts returned unused to the donor within 14 days of receipt.
- Informational material used to assist in the performance of official duties, including audio-visual or printed material, or free admission or discounts to informational conferences or seminars.
