Implementation roadmap

Norway implemented ELI in September 2016 as a beta-version. The beta-version is intended to fulfill the recommendations for step 1, 2 and 3.

Step 1
ELI URIs are implemented for all consolidated legislation, both statutes and regulations. The OJ versions (Lovtidend) are also referrable using ELI URIs.

Step 2
Using ELI URIs as URLs returns a set of metadata for each document, which we believe covers the mandatory fields in the ELI standard, in addition to a few more. Documentation will follow the transition from the beta phase.

Step 3
All the metadata described in Step 2 are also embedded in the pages as RDFa attributes, adhering to the ELI standard.
