Justice is borderless. e-CODEX (e-Justice Communication via Online Data Exchange) provides easy access to cross-border justice for citizens, business and legal professionals all over Europe.
Creating a more just and secure Europe is one of the priorities of the European Commission and fundamental to achieving a true Single Market. Access to justice should not be discouraged by the complex variety of our different legal systems. For example, in taking cross-border small claims to court, transborder marriages or dealing with criminal matters.
Cross-border judicial cooperation is crucial to the mobility of citizens and businesses in Europe. In an increasingly digital society, such cooperation relies on e-Justice solutions to facilitate the interaction between different national and European actors in legal procedures.

e-CODEX offers a European digital infrastructure for secure cross-border communication in the field of justice. The EU co-founded project strives to improve the exchange of cross-border legal information and enhances the access of citizens and businesses to legal means in Europe.
The project provides easy access to judicial information and boosts judicial cooperation by improving the interoperability between legal authorities within the European Union. Technical solutions are designed to cope with different legal systems and include a methodology for mutual equal interpretation of legal terms. All solutions are based on the principle of subsidiarity, so that national IT-solutions can be preserved.
In the end, e-CODEX makes judicial procedures more transparent, efficient and economic. At the same time it facilitates citizens, companies, administrations and legal practitioners to get easy access to justice, thus making Europeans feel safer and legally protected.
