e-Codex: towards European legal information for companies without borders

The kick off of the e-codex project is intended to improve exchanges and cross-border access by citizens and companies to legal means in Europe and was officially launched on 25 September 2014.  In practice, this project is intended to simplify exchanges of information from the trade and companies registers in the framework of cross-border mergers.

G.I.E. Infogreffe is acting as the technical operator for France and is involved in various workshops for development of the project

The National Council of Clerks (CNGTC), represented by Maître Sophie JONVAL, associate clerk at the Commercial Court in Caen, and president of Infogreffe, Maître Bernard BAILET, upon invitation by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Justice, participated in this official launch, at the time of the German Congress of IT tools for the legal profession held in Sarrebruck. The European Commission largely recognises the need to streamline access to cross-border legal procedures so as the unique market may continue development.

In this framework, e-CODEX, as a project jointly funded by the EU, is intended to improve cross-border access by citizens and companies to legal resources in Europe.

At technical level, the objective of the e-CODEX project is to establish a level of European interoperability for communication of "e-justice".
