There is a key to the colour-coding included in the document. There is also text in purple, which represents changes between this trilogue document and the previous one.
On 22 March the Court of Justice of the EU handed down an important judgment on the openness of trilogues which should, in the future, help to bring more transparency to a process which is currently shrouded in secret - despite the fact that between 70-80% of all EU legislative measures adopted are negotiated through trilogues.
