1. New Method of EU Legal Acts’ Numbering

As of 1 January 2015, the numbering of EU legal acts will change. Find out more about the new method of numbering.

This method will attribute numbers to documents published in the L (Legislation) series of the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ) aiming at harmoning and simplifying the divergent previous practices.

2. Redesign of the EUR-Lex Advanced Search

The Advanced search form in EUR-Lex has been redesigned.

3. Merge of PreLex by EUR-Lex

Prelex has been withdrawn as a standalone database as of 15 December 2014. The EU legislative procedures will only be available via EUR-Lex under Legislative Procedures

4. ‘Old’ version of EUR-Lex still available

Note that the previous version of EUR-Lex remains accessible for all content except the Official Journal from 1st April 2014. For the latter, only the bibliographical notices are accessible but not the texts themselves.

Several EUR-Lex resources are available at the EUI European Documentation Centre in various formats (print, electronic, microfiche etc.)
