3.2.4. References to amendments to an act

Footnotes in the Official Journal no longer include the last modification of an act, but limit themselves to the OJ reference of the act in its initial version. The acts referred to in the texts published in the OJ are understood to be the acts in their version in force. The expressions ‘as (last) amended by’, ‘corrected by’ and ‘repealed by’ are no longer used.

Occasionally, however, the author may wish to refer to a specific text as it stands on a specific date or to stress an amending act in particular. In this case, the amending act is cited as a ‘static reference’ in its short form and with a footnote reference if it is cited for the first time:
