Promulgation

Promulgation is the formal proclamation or the declaration that a new statutory or administrative law is enacted after its final approval.[1] In some jurisdictions, this additional step is necessary before the law can take effect.

After a new law is approved, it is announced to the public through the publication of government gazettes and/or on official government websites. National laws of extraordinary importance to the public may be announced by the head of state on national broadcast. Local laws are usually announced in local newspapers and published in bulletins or compendia of municipal regulations.[citation needed]
