Likumi.lv is a website of legal acts that ensures free access to systematised (consolidated) legal acts of the Republic of Latvia.
Likumi.lv was created in 2001 so that everyone could exercise his or her rights stipulated in Section 90 of the Constitution of the Republic of Latvia: "Everyone has the right to know about his or her rights." The latest information about changes in legal acts is available on the website, maintained and developed by the official publisher "Latvijas Vēstnesis".
Its operation is regulated by the Law on Official Publications and Legal Information.
The legal acts are systematised according to the Cabinet Regulation No. 101 of 18 February 2014 "Regulations Regarding Recording of International Treaties and Systematisation of Legal Acts".
The entire content of Likumi.lv is informative, and in case of differences in interpretation the official publication shall prevail.
The official publisher "Latvijas Vēstnesis" does not receive any budget funding for the maintenance of Likumi.lv. It is maintained from the earnings of "Latvijas Vēstnesis" (the costs are covered from the charge for the official publication paid by the submitter of the information, unless otherwise provided by a law or a Cabinet Regulation).
