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 national legislation enacted since 2001 can be retrieved by metadata and browsed by volume and number. The data is not machine readable (it is available in PDF and DOC format). No licence is visible (although the legislation should be in the public domain).

More comprehensive legislation set is available at and, but it also isn't machine readable.

Reviewer comments
