Definitions for "Codified"
To arrange laws, rules, etc., systematically.
enacted by a legislative body; "statute law"; "codified written laws"
Laws or regulations that are codified are general and permanent laws or regulations that are arranged in subject-matter order by title or other major subdivision and section (as opposed to session laws, which are generally presented in chronological order). The text of the original law or regulation is collated with any subsequent amendments (additions to or deletions from the language of the original law or regulation), so as to provide the most up-to-date text of the law or regulation. Most bills or session laws indicate (either in either the text or the margin) the title (or other major subdivision) and section number of the U.S. Code or the state code in which the law will appear.
