This website is managed by Her Majesty's Stationery Office on behalf of the Queen’s Printer for Scotland. The site contains the full text of all Acts of the Scottish Parliament and the Explanatory Notes to the Acts of the Scottish Parliament; and Scottish Statutory Instruments.
The aim is to publish these documents on the Internet simultaneously or at least within 24 hours of their publication in printed form. However, any document which is especially complex in terms of its size or its typography may take longer to prepare.
Links are also provided to the full text of all United Kingdom Acts of Parliament and United Kingdom Statutory Instruments which apply exclusively or primarily to Scotland.
Specific links have also been provided to the full text of the Scotland Act 1998 and its associated delegated legislation which established the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Executive.
