This system was provided for by the Automated Registration of Title to Land (Electronic Communications) (Scotland) Order 2006 and its successors. The 2006 Order was made under the Electronic Communications Act 2000.

228.Subsection (3) allows Scottish Ministers to make various provisions in regulations regarding automated registration. This will allow provision to be made for ARTL or any successor system.
