The duration of the project was from 1st June 2017 until 31st March 2020.
The objective of the project was to support five Member States (Germany, Italy, Romania, Croatia and France) in connecting to the European e-Justice Portal in order to improve the information provided from the insolvency registers to the relevant debtors, creditors and courts involved in insolvency proceedings and to prevent the opening of parallel insolvency proceedings. The project contributed to the creation of a single point of access to all insolvency information of the European Union and furthered the development of the European e-Justice portal to become the one-stop-shop for all judicial information.
The aim of the project was the creation of a system of interconnection of insolvency registers in accordance to Article 25 et seq. of REGULATION (EU) 2015/848.
