Organic Law 14/2022, reforming Organic Law 10/1995 on the Criminal Code


This Legal Briefing analyses the amendments to the Criminal Code introduced by Organic Law 14/2022, of 22 December

On 23 December 2022, Organic Law 14/2022, of 22 December, on the transposition of European directives and other provisions for the adaptation of criminal legislation to European Union law, and the reform of offences against psychological welfare, public disorder and smuggling of dual-use weapons (“OL 14/2022”) was published, and has been in force since 12 January 2023.

The purpose of this legislation is to transpose several European Directives and it has led to the amendment of the Criminal Code, affecting both natural persons and also the criminal liability of legal persons. This is a major change in our legal system, in that it amends a number of offences (offences against psychological welfare, offences against property and the socio economic order, forgery offences, offences against the Public Administration) and removes others (offences against public order and the offence of sedition).
