Legislation in Wales

Senedd Cymru's laws are called Acts of Senedd Cymru (or Senedd Acts) and have the same status as UK Parliament Acts, which are primary legislation.

Laws made by Ministers and other bodies are made using powers delegated to them by Acts of Senedd Cymru or UK Acts. They are called subordinate legislation.

An Act of Senedd Cymru starts as a Senedd Bill. Bills are proposals for Acts, which Senedd Cymru considers and decides whether to ‘pass’, or in other words make into law. Visit the Law making in Wales page to learn more about how legislation is made in Wales.

Below is a list of all Senedd Acts (and the form of legislation made before those, known as Measures). Each link takes you to information about that Act and any subordinate legislation or guidance made under it.
