Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is available on this site?
This site contains unconsolidated versions (“Annual Laws”) of Bermuda’s Public Acts and Statutory Instruments from 1993 – present, and consolidated versions (“Consolidated Laws”) of all legislation.

2. Can I access Private Acts?
This site does not include Private Acts.

3. What are the Consolidated Laws?
The Consolidated Laws are the Public Acts and Statutory Instruments as amended by subsequent amending legislation.  The Consolidated Laws are updated with amendments as soon as possible after the amendments come into force.

4. What are the Annual Laws?
The Annual Laws comprise all Acts as originally enacted by the Legislature, and all subordinate legislation as made, for each year.  Amendments made by subsequent legislation are not shown in the text.  Users should therefore verify for themselves whether legislation is in force or whether it has been amended or repealed.
