Interim Law Revision package
An Interim Law Revision is a mini-law revision of an Act or Ordinance and its subsidiary legislation up to a specific date, or of a number of Acts or Ordinances relating to a particular subject matter. If carried out in conjunction with a general law revision, the interim law revision can be brought into operation before the general law revision is completed.
General Law Revision package
A General Law Revision consolidates and revises the entire statute book of a jurisdiction up to a particular date.
Law Revision Update package
A Law Revision update consolidates and revises legislation that was amended since the last law revision. For example, Anguilla had a general law revision in 2000 with a cut-off date of 15 December, 2000. This was followed by six (6) Law Revision updates which resulted in the publication of Law Revision updates showing the laws as 15 December 2002, 15 December 2004, 15 December 2006 and 15 December 2008, 15 December 2010 and 15 December 2014.
