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


All primary legislation is uploaded by the HM Attorney General's department (cloud hosted open source system as per Jersey) and all secondary legislation is uploaded by the IT department at the Isle of Man Parliament (cloud hosted Microsoft Sharepoint). All "live" primary legislation is available free online. All secondary legislation from 2000 is available free online and all earlier secondary legislation is available free by email (typically within 1 hour) -- all earlier secondary legislation will be uploaded in 2014 Q4.

Since some of the legislation is not available online, we are marking it as 'unsure'. Bulk download of all legislations is also not present. And the Open Government License is unfortunately not the one linked as the Terms of Use of the Legislation Web Site.
