About the legislation

The legislation contained within this app is sourced directly from The National Archives. "Revised" means that amendments made by subsequent legislation are incorporated into the text. The revised versions of legislation are maintained by the editorial team at The National Archives and the staff of the Northern Ireland Statutory Publications Office.

According to The National Archives, all legislation in revised form has been updated with effects of legislation made up to 2002 (except for some effects of 2002 legislation that were not yet in force at the end of 2002). About half of all items of legislation are up-to-date to the present. For the remainder of legislation, there are still effects outstanding for at least one of the years 2003 to present.

The National Archives has embarked on a programme designed to bring the revised legislation fully up to date, but it is likely to be some time until this goal is achieved. Please see for more information.
