Electronic OJ given legal status

Regulation 216/2013 of 7 March 2013 states that only the Official Journal produced electronically will have authentic and full legal status. The OJ is accessible via Eur-Lex.

Many academic libraries have already cancelled their print subscriptions to the OJ series, due to budget reductions, space limitations and the general shift towards electronic access. We, at the University of Glasgow Library, hadn’t taken this step because the print was the only version with full legal effect. However, this legislation now gives us the green light to cancel.
