Directorate of Legal and Administrative Information (Dila) - Prime Minister

To build your name change file for legitimate reason, you need the printed ad from the Official Journal (OJ).

This service allows you to search for a particular OJ and download an authenticated extract.

  Warning : You must know the date or number of OJ in which the advertisement you are looking for was published.

Follow these steps:

  • Choose the date of publication of the OJ concerning you
  • Click at the end of the search summary on "Request for change of name"
  • Click « Access Protected Space » located in the middle of the page
  • Click « Extract from the Official Journal authenticated » to download the OJ pdf file

  Please note : the signature certificate is included in the pdf file. You can therefore legally use the text once printed.
