Introduction

1.  This document attempts to bring together all UK legislation that applies in the Sovereign Base Areas.

2.  Legislation is listed chronologically under subject matter headings arranged alphabetically.  So, for example, if you are interested in legislation implementing sanctions imposed by the UN or EU click on Control + S above. 

3.  Links are provided where electronic versions of the legislation are available on the UK’s Office of Public Sector Information website (or the SBAA website in a couple of cases).

4.  Where an Order in Council extends the application of a UK Act of Parliament to the Sovereign Base Areas, only the Order in Council is included in this Index.  Where a UK Act of Parliament itself extends to the Sovereign Base Areas, the Act of Parliament is included but Statutory Instruments made under it are not.
