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


This site ( also provides a list of laws in Iran with search capabilities. Data can also be acquired from there on a CD, but not sure how the format is there. We found laws with 1394 as their date-stamp, 1394 is the current year in the Iranian calendar. Thus, we think data provided is up to date.
