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

Data Location


Some of the data is available, but in a non-systematic means of publication. Only laws from the 2002 onwards can be found via the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) website. Furthermore, the data is not publicly licensed. At the moment a complete set of all Israeli bills can be found through private companies.

A historic repository of legislation, since the inauguration of Israel and up until 2001, can be found [in this legislation database, yet it is not working for the past couple of years.1. Basic and special interest laws can also be read in English and in Russian.
