8.1. Footnote references
References to footnotes appear in an identical way in all the language versions; they can take the following forms.
References to the Commission Regulation (1) also appear in the Council communication (2); but not in text of the Court of Justice (3).
For full details, see the external contractor’s study (‘the study’) (1).

Footnotes are generally numbered by page and placed at the foot of the corresponding page in smaller characters than the body of the text (generally by two points) separated from the text by a short rule and line space. They may also be numbered continuously or grouped at the end of the chapter or volume.
The reference to a footnote (including the brackets) is always composed in light roman (even in texts or titles written in italics or bold).
When a reference to a footnote appears in a table the note must form part of the table and consequently appear within the frame of the table.
