Open By-laws South Africa is a project to help South Africans be more informed about the legislation that governs them, and so aims to ensure all South Africa’s By-law legislation can be freely available and easy to read and share. This is achieved by making use of all South African by-laws available in open formats that encourage readability and reuse. By-laws made available include those that are easy to link to, including directly to parts, chapters and sections, HTML web pages, machine-friendly XML in the open Akoma Ntoso format, freely available in bulk from our GitHub repo, and those licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 South Africa License. According to the license, individuals are able to share and reuse the by-laws, even for commercial purposes, provided that is recognised as the source.
