Charter of Human Rights & Responsibilities Act 2006

  • Under the Charter Act, public authorities must consider human rights protected in the Charter Act when creating legislation, implementing policies or delivering services. Every new law made by Parliament is now accompanied by a Statement of Compatibility, which explains whether the law is compatible with the human rights in the Charter Act.
