redakcinio pobūdžio
of an editorial nature

[The changes, amendments, etc. are] "<B>of an editorial nature</B>".

This is a well-known idiom in formal documents and serious types of books in the English-speaking countries and among international organisations.
So, you can render the Lithuanian "redakcinio pobūdžio" quite literally this time.

"editorial (not comparable)
Of, or relating to an editor, <B><U>editing</U></B> or an editorial."
[ from - "editorial" ]

Example sentence(s):
  • Amendment 6, 8, 11 together with 56, 12, 13 and 43 are of an editorial nature and they have been introduced into the text in the most appropriate way with their editorial purpose in mind.
  • Reprint: Corrected copy of a Bill which shows the changes in a Bill which are of an editorial nature. Corrected reprints have the same Bill number as the original.
