Thai Civil & Commercial Code

The Thai Civil and Commercial Code (TCCC), promulgated in stages beginning in the 1920s, is the primary source of private law in Thailand. Drawing inspiration from European civil law traditions but tailored to Thailand’s needs, it governs matters including personal status, property rights, family law, inheritance, and contractual obligations.

It provides the legal framework for most everyday interactions of individuals and businesses, excluding criminal law which is covered by the Thai Penal Code. Each of the books contained within the (TCCC) are available to read below.

Disclaimer: Only the official Thai version published by the Thai government is legal in Thailand. The translated books have only been offered to you for the sake of better understanding.
