As with the 2017 Revised Edition, the 2020 supplement was executed by the Law Commission in
conjunction and consultation with the Regional Law Revision Centre in Anguilla. The Regional Law
Revision Centre was incorporated in Anguilla on January 11, 2007 and was set up by the British
government to assist its overseas territories with cost effective law consolidation, revision and printing
as opposed to the territories using the costly services of the UK based printers and publishers. Since
its inception, the Centre has been the one-stop-shop for law revision for independent jurisdictions
such as, Bahamas, Belize, Seychelles, and recently Guyana, to date the Centre has trained 320 persons
from 20 countries in law revision and consolidation.
The Government of St Kitts and Nevis is pleased with its collaboration with the Centre and values its
partnership. Consequently, the laws and ordinances can be purchased from the Ministry of Justice and
Legal Affairs. Orders can also be made by utilising the “Order Form” on the Law Commission’s website
