“How Legislation is Made in Hong Kong”, published by the Department of Justice, explains the key features of the legislation-making process in Hong Kong. It -
“How Legislation is Made in Hong Kong” was published by the Department of Justice in 2012. With the discontinuation of the Bilingual Laws Information System (BLIS) in July 2018, there have been changes to the publication of consolidated legislation as described in “How Legislation is Made in Hong Kong”. In brief, the Hong Kong e-Legislation (HKeL) is now the only official database of Hong Kong legislation. Verified copies of legislation published on the HKeL have legal status under the Legislation Publication Ordinance (Cap. 614). The Loose-leaf Edition of the Laws of Hong Kong is being phased out as the verification project progresses. Please see "What is Hong Kong e-Legislation" and "FAQ" for more information on the transitional arrangements.
