Components are the individual building blocks used to create content. Using them in a consistent way helps to create visual and functional unity across our web presence.

Every component is designed to serve a specific function or solve a user need and  to work together as parts of a greater, harmonious whole. These guidelines show examples and describe how to use them.

If you are looking for technical specifications and code snippets, you'll find links in each of the guidelines below, or you can go to the Europa Component Library to find the component.

If you are using the Europa Web Publishing Platform (EWPP), you'll find a link to the EWPP user manual for each component that's available in the platform.
