The Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State (Italian: Pontificia Commissione per lo Stato della Città del Vaticano) is the legislative body of Vatican City.[2] It consists of President of the Governatorate of Vatican City State, who is also President of the Pontifical Commission, and six other Cardinals appointed by the pope for five year terms.[2]

Laws and regulations proposed by the Commission must be submitted to the pope through the Secretariat of State prior to being made public and taking effect.[2] Laws, regulations, and instructions enacted by the Commission are published in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis.[3]

In addition to his legislative role, the President of the Governatorate of Vatican City State, who since 1 October 2011 has been Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, has been delegated executive authority for the Vatican City State by the pope.

The Pontifical Commission was created in 1939 by Pius XII.
