Brexit: secondary legislation – index

Information about secondary legislation and Scottish statutory instruments in the event of a 'no deal' Brexit scenario.

Scottish statutory instruments (SSIs)

A Scottish statutory instrument is a form of law made by the Scottish Ministers (or other responsible authorities) on behalf of the Scottish Parliament. 

SSIs are also known as secondary, delegated or subordinate legislation. SSIs have the same legal status as primary legislation (acts) but the process for making this form of law, or amending it, is quicker. In some areas, a SSI will be used to correct deficiencies in devolved legislation.
