If you have a general question on the European Union, get in touch with EUROPE DIRECT.
You can call the toll-free number 00 800 6 7 8 9 10 11 from anywhere in the EU during opening hours (9:00-18:30 CET on weekdays) or simply send an e-mail in any of the official EU languages.
Looking for legal texts
If you are looking for legal texts and the Official Journal of the European Union, you can consult the EUR-Lex database.
EUR-Lex provides direct, free access to European Union law. It includes inter alia the treaties, legislation, case-law and legislative proposals - and offers extensive search facilities.
Looking for calls for tender
TED (Tenders Electronic Daily) is the on-line version of the Supplement S to the Official Journal of the European Communities (available in all official EU languages) containing calls for tender, contract awards and pre-information notices.
The full list of calls is published daily in the 23 official EU languages in the TED database.
