This page has moved to a new location, please update your bookmarks or favourites.

Statutory instruments (SIs) are documents created by a government department to make changes to the law. They are usually published with an explanatory memorandum, which explains the purpose of the SI and why the change is necessary.

SIs often have rule, order or regulation in their title.
