Today I’d like to bring to your attention a fantastic little resource which can be used to understand how CELEX document codes are used in EUR-Lex (the e-platform for European Union law). The CELEX number is the unique identifier of each document in EUR-Lex, regardless of language.
On top of being helpful when searching for and accessing documents, this list also provides a great overview of the document types contained in the database:
- international agreements
- complementary legislation
- preparatory acts and working documents
- national transposition measures
- national case law
- parliamentary questions
- consolidated documents
- the official journal series
- EFTA documents.
You will find the list here. Enjoy! 🙂
There are also video tutorials to help – including this tongue-in-cheek introduction.
Other more detailed videos on searching the database can be found in the EUR-Lex playlist.
Hat tip to @cottinstef for making me aware of the CELEX code list via Nuzzel.
