Is this of interest to you?

If you are a member of an organization dealing with the editing or publication of legal texts, struggling with the formalization of legal texts, looking for a structured format, which would enable automatic processing and interoperability between IT systems, or have an interest in the topic, then you are in the right place. 


About us

Our journey started under ISA Programme as LEOS and continued under ISA2 Programme as LegIT- 2016.38 Legislation Interoperability Tools from Q2/2016 planned up until Q3/2021. The project has involved the European Commission (Secretariat-General, Directorate-General for Informatics), European Parliament, Council of the European Union, Publications Office. If you want to find out more out LEOS, please see our LEOS - Getting started presentation.

The first step was a study that delivered a better understanding of the way public administrations address the issue of drafting their legislations, with a view to identify best practices, improvements and areas where common efforts and developments are possible.


Having identified an opportunity in the field, the project delivered various proof of concepts and prototypes. Now we have an execution phase every year where we constantly improve our tool.

Therefore an active community would help us better define reusable building blocks and create synergies between similar projects at EU or Member State level.
