Cases – EU

JustCite recognises a variety of Common Names for documents that are well known, to ensure JustCite remains easy to use. Here you will find the common names of EU Documents known to JustCite. This is especially useful since it is unusual for a provision such as a Directive to be referred to by its full title. For instance, Council Directive 96/61/EC of 24 September 1996 concerning integrated pollution prevention and control is commonly referred to as the IPPC Directive. Since JustCite maps common names to the CELEX number of the corresponding document, you can find EU documents without knowing their formal title.


There are currently 546 EU common names known to JustCite.
