Belgrade Model EU 2015 Documents

best-practice (paper-free) reading of EU regulations

Dear participants of the Model European Union simulation 2015,

I totally support the aim of the simulation organisers to print less paper during the conference. So I will provide, as I did last time, the juridical texts in various eBook formats! The text used in the conference are shortened! The original sources are probably these ones:

Regulation:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2015.169.01.0001.01.ENG
Directive:
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=OJ:JOL_2015_068_R_0001

BEUM Shortened Versions! Please be aware of the fact that the documents below are based on a modified, shortened version of the original texts.
