The European Commission and the Office for Official Publications (EUR-OP) have changed the structure of the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Communities (OJ S series). In order to guarantee the publication dates of the increased number of notices published in the Supplement, the Commission and EUR-OP have been forced to restructure the Supplement and review the existing translation practices, as follows: - The first section will contain the various notices, some of which will, as at present, be translated in their entirety; included in this section will be notices of further information and notices of corrigendum; - The second section will contain notices issued by the institutions of the European Union; these will be published in their entirety; - The contract award notices will appear in the third section; these will be translated; - The fourth section will contain translated summaries of the main points of EU and EEA pre-information and contract notices; - The fifth section will contain the entire text of notices in their original language, the translated summaries of which will appear in section 4; - Finally, the sixth section will contain the GATT notices, which, as at present, will be published in English. This new structure, while limiting the translation of pre-information and contract notices, will allow the reader to examine the full text of the notice in its original language (only the original text being authentic), without having to consult other editions of the Supplement. Furthermore, the restructuring will allow easier access to the contract award notices, all of which are grouped in one section of the Journal. This new structure entered into force on 18 October 1994.
