Can I rely on the fact that the texts of the EU Regulations and EU Directives displayed in the judict database are always up-to-date?
Definitely! We source the legislative texts directly from the EU Publications Office (EUR-Lex) and synchronise them with the EUR-Lex website on a daily basis. This ensures that we consistently offer the most up-to-date consolidated version of each legislative text.
On top, we have implemented an algorithm-based system that detects all legislative amendments on a daily basis. With the help of this system, we are displaying a notice box at every article that is affected by an amending legal act published in the Official Journal but where the amendment has not yet been incorporated in the current EUR-Lex consolidation of the legislative text. We thereby ensure that you can no longer find yourself in a situation where you are working with an outdated consolidated version without noticing it.
How are the 'Related documents' collected and how does judict ensure that its document library is always up-to-date and complete?
judict collects the related documents from the official websites of EBA, ESMA, EIOPA, BaFin and EUR-Lex through automated processes. Every day, we screen all relevant database entries, web pages and documents provided by the authorities and whenever new or updated documents are detected, they are added to our document library. With this daily updating routine, we make sure that the library data is always up-to-date and complete.
How does judict process the documents for display in the database?
Once the documents are collected, algorithms decide on their relevance for the judict database. With an automated process based on NLP techniques (natural language processing), all documents classified as relevant are added. Subsequently, the documents are mapped to the legal acts and the specific articles they relate to. We do this with algorithm-based pre-sorting followed by manual quality control. With this two-step process, we guarantee the constant up-to-dateness and high quality standard of the judict database. As of now, we have processed more than 40,000 documents.
