Mémorial

Mémorial is the official gazette of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It is published by the Central Legislation Service (French: Service central de législation), an agency of the government of Luxembourg. Until the Second World War, Mémorial was published in both French and German, which were the two official languages of Luxembourg. Since the war, it has been published in only French (even though German remains an official language, and Luxembourgish has also become one).

Mémorial is subdivided into three separate publications. Although the separate publications had already been established, the current arrangement and separation of duties is dictated by the Grand Ducal decree of 9 January 1961.[1] Under that decree, the three publications of Mémorial are:

  • Mémorial A, containing text of legislation, Grand Ducal decrees, and European Union directives. It was established by Grand Ducal decree on 22 October 1842.[2]
  • Mémorial B, containing administrative instructions; changes in government policies not requiring a form of legislation, directive, or decree; and edicts of importance to only specific individuals or for only a very short period of time. It was established by Grand Ducal decree on 20 April 1854.[3]
  • Mémorial C, containing personal and financial matters, including the foundation, liquidation, and restructuring of corporations. It was established by statute on 10 August 1915.[4]
