Unconsolidated Pennsylvania Statutes (These may not be the current law. Court decisions may have overturned them or later statutes amended them.):

Standard format:

Official or popular name of the statute, if the law has one (if not named, “Act of”), date of the enactment of the original Act of the General Assembly, abbreviation for the Pamphlet Laws, the page reference in that year’s publication of the Pamphlet Laws, the act number (possibly). (An Act number may be referenced; these are assigned consecutively to bills passed in each legislative session; for example, No 64.)


Pharmacy Act, Act of September 27, 1961, P.L. 1700.

Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act, Act of April 14, 1972, P.L.233, No.64

Act of April 28, 1999, P.L. 24, No.3.

Consolidated Pennsylvania Statutes (the official statutes in force. They are organized under

79 subject titles and are updated annually with revised supplements.)

Standard format:

Title, title number, Pa.C.S. (or P.S.), section symbol, section number. Pa.C.S. identifies statutes not yet officially consolidated by the legislature; P.S. identifies those officially enacted in consolidated form.


Blood Donation Age of Consent 35 Pa.C.S. § 10011.

(You may sometimes see consolidated statutes referred to with an enactment citation. For example, Pharmacy Act, Act of September 27, 1961, P.L. 1700, (63 Pa.C.S. § 390-1 et seq. In this example, the Pharmacy Practice Act was enacted as the Act of September 27, 1961, P.L. 1700. It has also been codified in the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statues and may be cited as 63 P.S. § 390-1 et seq. Either citation is correct, although when using the enactment citation, it is customary to include the consolidated statute information in parentheses.)
