Subject: Re: [legaldocml] Support and focus of Secondary/Delegated/Supplementary Legislation

Sorry if this was addressed I'm yesterday's call: in the U.S. At the Federal level "secondary legislation" is generally referred to as "regulation" or "implementing regulation".  It is governed by its own statutory framework, the Administrative Procedures Act (Title 5 of the US Code) and involves daily print and on line publication (The Federal Register), a published system of agency codifications (The Code of Federal Regulations ("CFR")) and a huge body of jurisprudence.  And this does not even begin to address "federal scheme" implementing legislation at the state level in 51 jurisdictions.
And that's just "us" here in the colonies.

Dear Lewis,

thanks a lot! your contribution is really what we need in the TC.

Tomorrow we will dedicate the TC meeting to the "Bill" but for the next
time I will try to markup a relevant part (not all) of your document
http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/Doc/217736/0121478.pdf in Akoma Ntoso.

We have experience with the Italian secondary legislation: all the
Italian Official Gazette was marked up using the "sister" standard
NormeInRete starting from 2005.

The main problem, as you said, is to manage in a smart way tables,
images, formulas etc. and to annotate them with metadata in order to
permit manipulations and versioning over time.

But let me make my homework on your document and I will come back to you
with the outcomes of my experiment.

As Fabio has previously described the task of authoring/amending/publishing/disseminating this legislation can be (and usually is) delegated to some party outside of the parliament. In the case of Scotland the rights/power to produce national building regulations is granted to the Scottish Parliament through the following piece of UK primary legislation [0], which in turn resulted in the Scottish Parliament delegating this task to the Directorate for the Built Environment, resulting in the production of the Scottish Technical Standards[1] (national building regs) and a whole host of supplementary (non-legally binding) guidance and regulation surrounding the building regulations and the regulatory ecosystem itself.
> My question relates specifically to bring to the surface the peculiarities we typically experience within delegated legislation of this type e.g. technical images embedded throughout the content, the concept of pages within the legislation, headers, footers, complex tables containing a combination of numeric and String based data, equations relating to energy performance calculations etc. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the nasties we find peppered throughout documents of this type. Such a document can be seen [2]. This particular document has quite a nice selection of nasties displaying the typical hurdles people experience when attempting to comply with such domain specific legal texts... which have been changing more recently on a bi-annual basis.
