This is an historical outline of archival legislation in four British West African subregions. The scope is limited to these countries because they have the same historical background as they were British colonies. The realization of the importance of legislation to archival institutions in developed countries and paradoxically the poor recognition of it in many developing countries and its implications on archive administration and records keeping that has motivated this write-up.
