Start of EURegio Pilot
Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands establish electronic cross-border cooperation between the national prosecuting authorities. The solutions of e-CODEX enable this cooperation between the “Tri-national working group on digitalisation of EURegios’ cross-border communication in criminal matters” and e-CODEX. The new pilots focus is on secure data exchange for criminal matters.
The EURegio pilot has officially started. In Aachen, North Rhine-Westphalia, the representative of Belgium (Hubert Cooreman), the ministers of Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia, Thomas Kutschaty) and the Netherlands (Ivo Opstelten) officially kicked-off the cooperation, which contributes to the realisation of the EU-Convention 2000 on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters and its Additional Protocol 2001.

The first European Large Scale Pilot in the domain of e-Justice
What actions to take in legal disputes that cross national borders? Due to the complexity of cross-border disputes nowadays, not many people feel comfortable enough to take the matter to court. According to the EU-commission, justice is not only of national importance, it is a cross-border personal right.
The EU-commission dedicated itself to improving the cross-border exchange of information in legal proceedings - where citizens, businesses and governments are involved - in a safe, accessible and sustainable way.
In pursuing this goal, e-CODEX is to develop building blocks that can be used in- or between Member States to support cross-border operation of processes in the field of justice.
One of the most important requirements for European Large Scale Pilots (LSPs) is cross-border communication. Though in detail the requirements differ, what they all have in common is the need for a secure and reliable “platform” to (electronically) exchange documents and data between citizens, businesses, governments and judicial authorities.
