Legislation Citation Help

Get a Specific Document from the Home Page

If you are using the Get a Specific Document option on the Home Page, you can enter the citation for an Act. For example, 1980 and 21 will find the Competition Act (c21). Alternatively, you can enter an SI number. For example, 1999 and 3483 will find the Pesticides (Maximum Residue Levels in Crops, Food and Feeding Stuffs) (England and Wales) Regulations 1999.
