COM documents: Links from the titles in the Official Journal of documents adopted by the Commission to their texts in full will now make it easier for the EUR-Lex user to access these documents. Henceforth and from OJ C 211 of August 2005, when titles of preparatory acts adopted by the Commission and COM documents other than preparatory acts are published in the Official Journal, the on-line version of the Official Journal accessible on EUR-Lex will contain a link to the text in full.
A click on the document number (left-hand column ‘Documents’) will open the page of EUR-Lex containing the archive information and the text of the COM document you require. Example
New links: information about international agreements and parliamentary questions as well as links to reference sites are now available on EUR-Lex, pending the development of more comprehensive access to documents and their analysis in EUR-Lex itself.
About European law: for visitors who are less familiar with European questions, the site provides information on the institutions and Community law to make it easier for them to find the required data. It also includes explanations of the instruments that play a part in the production of Community legislation. Follow the link Process and players from the menu on the left side of the homepage.
Corrigendum: access to consolidated legislation: contrary to our previous announcement, the successive consolidated versions of a text cannot be retrieved from the bibliographic notice for the moment for technical reasons.
Coming soon in EUR-Lex:
- National implementing measures: references to the national measures for the transposition of Community directives will soon be available.
- Secondary legislation in Bulgarian and Romanian: the texts of the acts of the institutions and of the European Central Bank in force at the time of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania, will be published in due course in a special edition of the Official Journal of the European Union in the Bulgarian and the Romanian languages.
The provisional electronic version of the texts prepared in view of this publication, will be made available on EUR-Lex.
