ST HELENA

REVISED EDITION OF THE LAWS, 2017

Introduction

The Islands of St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha comprise three internally self-governing British Overseas Territories.  Consolidated and updated versions of the laws of each of the 3 territories have been published at intervals over the years.  The 2001 Revised Edition of the laws of St Helena was in hard copy. It is now replaced by this electronic Revised Edition, which has been produced under the authority of the Revised Edition of the Laws Ordinance, 1999.  For a description of the scheme and style of the Revised Edition see the General Introduction to the website.

St Helena has its own legislature and can make its own laws, although many of the laws of the UK also apply with appropriate modifications; see the General Introduction.
