Introduction: a legal interpretation activity is an independent type of legal activity. Despite this, its system today is rather poorly studied, which leads to the contradictions in the formation of interpretative practice. One of the elements of the system of legal interpretation activity is interpretative norms, which in legal science have not been distinguished as an independent legal category and have not been comprehensively studied. Purpose: to establish the truth in the issue of distinguishing interpretative norms as an independent legal category. Methods: the methodological framework for the study is a set of methods of scientific knowledge, including consistency, analysis, comparative legal, formal legal. Results: the author’s position grounded in the work is based on the study of the term “interpretative norms”, as well as their comparative analysis with the norms of law to identify the common and individual features. Conclusions: as a result of the conducted research, it is established that interpretative norms should be considered in the legal science as an independent legal category. This is confirmed by the possibility of distinguishing one’s own concept, as well as the presence of an individual legal nature. The current system of Russian law is an interdependent tandem of legal norms and interpretative norms, which interact with each other, allowing the most optimal way to achieve the goals of the legal regulation.

Key words: legal activity, legal interpretation, interpretation of law, explanation, clarification, interpretative act, interpretative practice, interpretative norms.
