EUR-Lex developments: October 2020

We are pleased to communicate the latest main changes of EUR-Lex.

Main improvements and new features of the latest release of EUR-Lex include:

    Results page

    • The filters on the left-hand side of the results page have been restructured and reordered. This gives a clearer and simpler picture of the filters available to users.

    Consolidated acts

    • The consolidated texts are enriched with additional anchors and links. This makes it easier to navigate within consolidated texts, enabling users to quickly find the parts which are affected by a particular modifying act.
    • A link that will always lead to the most up-to-date version of the consolidated texts is now available. This link will always follow the most recent updates. If the current consolidated version has any amending acts or corrigenda pending consolidation, the link will also return a list of these documents.


    • In the Advanced search form, when the collection `Case-law´ is selected, a new value, `Cites´ is added in the box `Relations with other legal acts – Type of relation´. With this new option, you can search for case-law citing a specific legal act.
    • If there is an error in your expert search query, EUR-Lex highlights in yellow where the syntax needs to be modified.

    National transposition measures

    • The display of the machine translation results in the National Transposition Measures page is improved: the original language and the translation of the title of the document appear simultaneously.

    Mobile view

    • The display of the Search Results page has been simplified on the mobile version of EUR-Lex. Now, the languages of the Official Journal publication are hidden by default and can be shown by tapping `More information´.
