Cayman Islands “Laws” to be referred to as “Acts”
Effective 3 December 2020, the Cayman Islands Citation of Acts of Parliament Law 2020 came into force. This law provides that any enactment that has been a “Law” or which contains a reference to the title of a Law, should be amended by omitting the word “Law” and substituting it with the word “Act”.
This means that all Cayman Islands laws past and future must be referred to as “Acts”.
References to “Laws” in documents and contracts will not affect their validity but for updated documentation and new contracts practitioners should update the references accordingly.
