EVIDENCE2e-CODEX is a merger of the former EVIDENCE and e-CODEX projects. So far, e-CODEX has been applied for communication in mutual legal assistance (MLA) procedures. Evidences could also be enclosed, but further development of formats for submitting and exchanging evidences is needed. EVIDENCE has established an overview of legal frameworks on the use and exchange of electronic evidence and has identified a technical standard for e-Evidence including common definitions of evidence. EVIDENCE2e-CODEX links the achievements of both former projects and is in line with EC recommendations for the improvement of mutual legal assistance exchanges.

In the beginning of March 2018 a kick-off meeting in Florence marked the start of two new e-CODEX related projects: EVIDENCE2e-CODEX and Electronic Xchange of e-Evidences with e-CODEX (EXEC). In both projects e-CODEX is the proud carrier of the European Investigation Orders (EIO) by enabling the cross border exchange of electronic evidence.

IRI (Interconnection of Insolvency Registers) works on interconnecting information from national insolvency registers. Up until now, there is no centralised EU insolvency register in place. The establishment of a EU-wide interconnection of national electronic insolvency registers through e-CODEX, will effectively enhance transparency about insolvency proceedings within the European Union. Relevant data on debtors subject to insolvency proceedings will be made publicly available through a uniform multi-lingual search engine on the European e-Justice portal.
