Use the Policy content type to ensure policy information is presented in the clearest manner possible, from high-level policies down to sub-policies at the lowest level.
Use the Policy content type in combination with the following content types: Funding, Law, Consultation, Page, Call for tenders, File and Publication.
other EC branded websites:
Use the Policy content type if you need to publish high-level policies and sub-policies down to the lowest level on ec.europa.eu/info/.
If you need to create a policy page on the European Commission website, consult the step-by-step guidelines to using the Policy content type.
Policy information is currently accessible on the European Commission website via the thematic class Strategy (see 'Policies by topic' to view example policy pages). However, policies are pool content. All policies appear in a list view.
Any policy page can contain links to parent policies and to sub-policies.
Policies on the lowest levels contain all the context information, goals and links to actions to implement the policy.
Use Policy content type fields, including those listed under the left-hand menu bar tabs: Basic Information, Page Architecture, Actions, Policy Input and Details.
