Statutory Instrument Headings Index
Below the serial number a statutory instrument has a subject heading, indicating the area of law or of administration to which it belongs. This heading must be the same as the main heading under which the enabling power would have been described in the Index to Government Orders, publication of which is currently suspended. The instrument will also appear under that heading in the monthly and annual lists of statutory instruments. Since publication of the Index to Government Orders has been suspended, HMSO has produced an Index of SI Headings.
The Statutory Instrument Headings Index is currently being finalised and developed
Guidance on the use of Subject headings can be found in paragraphs 2.3.6 - 2.3.10 of Statutory Instrument Practice (Word 1.9 MB)
