From António:

No law from 1990 but the treaty itself (which is not a law and has not been ratified by all the members of CPLP).

No. Sorry, [Peter], no such law exists in the portuguese republic. I do not know about Brazil. In the portuguese republic there is the 1990 treaty (and its two additions) and an information from the Portuguese Cabinet published in Diário da República, stating that the new spelling would be used in official documents and in schools the following year. That can hardly qualify as law. The AO45 was published as a law. It has not been revoked. - A.
