The “Regulation for the digitalisation of judicial cooperation” introduces a mandatory electronic communication between authorities and an obligation for authorities to receive electronic messages from citizens. Several European Member States are lacking the technical prerequisites for this obligation or need to renew their existing applications.
The objective of the project is therefore the creation of an international core application, which is based only on the requirements of the EPO Regulation but with interfaces to connect national extensions to it so that the application together with its national intentions can be used as a full case management system of the European Payment Order. The project will offer the application to all Member States.
The target group are national judicial authorities competent for the European Payment Order. Citizens are already served by the EPO online forms at the e-Justice Portal.
The project consists of the work packages:
- WP1: Project Management & Coordination
- WP2: Requirements Engineering & Implementation: this work package will first investigate in the requirements for the application from a European perspective but also national requirements. It will then develop an architecture for the application and subsequently implement and test the application.
- WP3: Support & Training: this work package will support the technical development by establishing a distribution channel for the application and providing testing services. It will further draft a training concept and material for trainers and users.
- WP4: Promotion & Sustainability: in order to motivate Member States to use the application, this work package will develop and execute promotion activities for a wide acceptance of the application. It will also develop provisions for the maintenance of the application after the project end and provide a licensing model for future users of the application.
