    Unless you are promulgating a statutory instrument, that is.​

    The following is a list of all the regulations which have been promulgated by posting to this forum. Regulations are a sub-form of statutory instrument. They create regulations which must be followed. There are also statutory instruments which declare that some thing must be done. Those are Orders. You can find them at this link.

    The Statutory Instruments Act 2017 gives multiple means by which a statutory instrument may be promulgated – via this forum, via dispatch, and via the NS forums.

    The Statutory Instruments have been edited as necessary to reflect changes and errors in grammar. The government also maintains a central repository of statutory instruments at this link:

    Whereas the ability to create forum accounts appears to be inoperable due to issues with the forum software being unable to load a required CAPTCHA:

    Now, therefore, The European Council, in exercise of the powers conferred by section 6(e) of the Government (Reform) Act 2017, makes the following regulations,
    1. These regulations may be cited as the Election (No. 3) Regulations 2018. These regulations shall come into force immediately.

    2. For the elections occurring in April 2018, regulation 4 of the Election (No. 2) Regulations 2018 shall be treated as valid even if a forum account cannot be affirmed. For the purposes of regulation 5, prospective candidates may file disclosures via any member of the Government, who shall post those disclosures in the proper location.
