Operating from within the National Archives, the Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) is at the heart of information policy, setting standards, delivering access and encouraging the re-use of public sector information. OPSI provides a wide range of services to the public, information industry, government and the wider public sector relating to finding, using, sharing and trading information.
The new legislation service Legislation.gov.uk is now live. Legislation.gov.uk replaces the Office of Public Sector Information and Statute Law Database (SLD) websites to deliver an integrated service with enhanced functionality.
Now launched, Legislation.gov.uk is the official site for UK Legislation as it is originally made (as enacted) and with a latest version, which shows how the legsilation has changed. A new timeline feature gives a unique insight into how the legislation has changed. The website also provide a dashboard for new legislation for those needing to keep up to date with the latest legislation being made.
The OPSI website will remain in place until all content has been migrated. This will happen in the near future with the remainder of legislation migrating to legislation.gov.uk and Crown Copyright information migrating to The National Archives’ Information Management website. In the meantime re-directs are being put in place where possible so users can view legislation on the new site and experience the new functionality.
See the contract information page for more details about the re-tendering process.
Her Majesty’s Stationery Office (HMSO) continues to exist and fulfill its core activities including responsibility for the publication of legislation and the management of Crown copyright operating from within OPSI. For more information on OPSI and HMSO please see the Related Pages menu.
