Interpretation No.748 ,drawn up the Trust Act, reviewed and revised the Civil Code.To perfect the system of administrative law, it has studied and drafted the Administrative Penalty Act, the Act of Administrative Procedure, and reviewed and revised the Act of Administrative Execution.

To unify the standards for determining national secrets and to protect national security and interests, it has drafted the National Secrets Protection Act. To respect the people's basic freedoms and rights and to lay the foundation for democratic government, it has studied and drawn up the Basic Act of Human-right Protection and the Act of Investigation by the National Human-right Commission.
