This data category requires all national laws and statutes available to be available online, although it is not a requirement that information on legislative behaviour e.g. voting records is available. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Content of the law / status
  • If applicable, all relevant amendments to the law
  • Date of last amendments
  • Data should be updated at least on quarterly

Comments

In this case, the questions about 'available in bulk' and 'open licensing' are very pertinent. As per the terms of use (http://www.legislation.gov.hk/blis/eng/cr.html ), "downloading a large amount of Legislation from BLIS by program in one go" is not allowed.

Reviewer comments
