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

The government makes available all promulgated acts, including amendments. Consolidated legislation is not available. Users must consolidate the legislation themselves.

There are aggregators of legislation making this data available in HTML and PDF formats. See http://www.acts.co.za/index.html, http://www.lawsofsouthafrica.up.ac.za/, http://www.saflii.org/za/legis/num_act/
