From time to time, National Unions request clarification of laws from World Rugby. When World Rugby completes the clarification, they distribute the document, and send it back to all nations. These can be very important, as they clear up issues with laws and interpretation of laws. They must be read and understood, similar to actual laws, by coaches, players, referees, and spectators.

You can find a listing of all law clarifications here.
