Approximation of Laws
The Directives are arranged in chronological order by the date of their original publication. Subsequent amendments are also listed except for those amendments necessitated solely by the subsequent accession of new Member States. As secondary legislation the Directives are all published in the Legislation series of the Official Journal of the European Communities (OJL). For the purpose of this bibliography the documents are cited as follows:
Year/Serial number/EEC Title Official Journal reference-Issue number, date, page
number. The only exception to the above rule is the first item in
the following list which was published prior to the establishment of the serial numbering system. Note also that prior to 1968 the Official Journal was not divided into a ‘C’ and an ‘L’ series.
