ELI implementation level

Belgium has implemented the first pillar: the URI.

URI template used (pillar 1)

The URI has a fixed part and a variable part:

  1. Fixed part: http://www.ejustice.just.fgov.be/eli/
  2. Variable part: part in which all items may have different values (TL/YYYY/MM/DD/Unique identifier/version of legislation).
    • TL represents the type of legislation. This item (upper or lower case) is obligatory; in its absence, cross-reference is made to the bilingual version of the help page. The types of legislation available are as follows:
      • CONSTITUTION
      • LOI [LAW] (federal legislation)
      • DECRET [edict] (regional and local legislation, since 1972)
      • ORDONNANCE [order] (Brussels legislation, since 1990)
      • ARRÊTÉ [decree] (secondary federal, regional and local legislation, such as royal decrees, regional or local government decrees, ministerial decrees)
    • YYYY represents the year in which the legislation was promulgated. This item is obligatory; in its absence, cross-reference is made to the version of the help page in the language of the type of legislation (TL).
    • MM represents the month in which the legislation was promulgated. This item is optional, but becomes obligatory if it is desired to complete the address with the day on which the legislation was promulgated (DD).
    • DD represents the day on which the legislation was promulgated. This item is optional, but becomes obligatory if it is desired to complete the address with the unique identifier.
    • Unique identifier is a unique number given to the legislation on publication. This number has ten digits, starting with the year in which the legislation was filed for publication, followed by its working number in the chain of production of the Official Journal. This item is optional, but becomes obligatory if it is desired to complete the address with the version of the legislation.
    • Version of the legislation: two versions of the legislation are potentially available:
      • Moniteur is the version in character mode provided by the Moniteur belge. A hyperlink can be used to access the publication image format (PDF). It is strongly advised to view the image, as the text version has no legal value and may be incomplete;
      • Justel is the consolidated version without any authentic or official status, created by Justel, a service of the Moniteur belge.

      This item is optional.
