Although every effort is made to provide a complete and an up to date resource, the statutory laws of a jurisdiction is a constantly evolving body of work, involving a never ending stream of amendments, repeals, and additions to that body of work.
This is a resource that is available nowhere else, and it is provided by the developers of this site for the benefit of the people of the Turks & Caicos Islands, but it is done without the assistance of the Government of the Turks & Caicos Islands and invariably there will be instances where there are amendments to legislation that are not reflected in the documents that are posted on this site, so the legislation on this site should be used for general guidance only and a practicing attorney should be consulted before any decisions are taken based on the legislation posted to this site.
