Status of ELI implementation

Portugal has implemented the 1st pillar of ELI since 19 December 2016: http://data.dre.pt/eli/diario/241/2016/0/pt/html.

On the 27th of July 2017, Portugal implemented Pillar II of the European Legislation Identifier (ELI) at the level of the official journal Diário da República and legal acts, in accordance with the metadata ELI ontology, version 1.1.

The ELI is applied to all types of legal acts published in the official journal Diário da República, 1st series, as of January 2, 1991, the date from which Decree-Law No. 1/91 has determined the identification of all the legal acts by a proper number and the date of publication.

The Portuguese official journal can be accessed on https://dre.pt/.

Short explanatory note

Between January 2, 1991 (pursuant to Decree-Law 1/91 and the original version of Law No. 74/98 and June 30, 2006, the first series of the official journal Diário da República was divided into two Parts:

However, article 3 of Law 26/2006, of June 30 (http://data.dre.pt/eli/lei/26/2006/06/30/p/dre/pt/html), revoked the division of the first series of the Diário da República in Part A and in Part B in stating that the Diário da República comprised only the first and the second series as of July 2006.

Therefore,

As of July 3, 2006, http://data.dre.pt/eli/diario/1/126/2006/0/pt/html, the first series of the official journal began to be published without the division into two Parts.

Below we present twelve examples of URI patterns for the official journal Diário da República for illustration of this explanatory note.
