From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The United Security Acts of 2162 was a document or a series of documents established in 2162, most likely by the United Nations. It is likely that the acts were created due to the Interplanetary War which was taking place at that time. At some point after their passage, the articles of the Acts were amended.
In effect as late as 2552, the United Security Acts of 2162 are among the several laws enforcing the confidentiality of code-word classification in top-secret UNSC files, the breach of which is punishable by the death penalty. The amended Articles of the Acts were cited by the AI Endless Summer in Flash 91762P-06.
