The Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) is the main source of EUR-Lex content. It is published every day from Tuesday to Saturday in the official EU languages. There are 2 series:

  • L (legislation)
  • C (information and notices).

    Subseries CA (e.g. C019A), with the same number as the C series published on the same day, contains calls for expressions of interest, vacancy notices, etc. CA editions may appear in one, several or all official languages.

    A new subseries, LI and CI, was introduced on 1 January 2016. This allows for greater flexibility in the event of a change in the planned content of the Official Journal. It was used for the first time on 16 January 2016 (L011I, C015I).

Since 1 January 2015, the numbering of EU legal acts has changed. Find out more about the new method of numbering.


This site contains electronic copies of all Official Journals since the first edition.

Effective 1 July 2013, the electronic edition of the OJ (e-OJ) is authentic and produces legal effects. Find out more about the e-OJ.

You still have the possibility to buy a non-authentic printed version of the Official Journal from the EU Bookshop website.
