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.
