ÉDITO of the newsletter the OFFICI@L – n°87 – September 2023

Dear readers,

Our first newsletter after the summer holidays will focus on the professional secrecy of officials and agents of the European Institutions. We also share with you our observations on a recent judgment of the EU General Court, regarding the possible succession of contracts of temporary agents 2(b) on different positions, which should not go unnoticed.

In our « Belgian Law» section, we take a look at the new law on consumer debts, which will help to reduce the penalty for late or forgotten payments.

This newsletter is also yours, and we welcome any suggestions you may have for future issues. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the following e-mail address:

We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter and have a great return to the office after the summer holidays!
