March 27, 2014 / ELRA Secretariat
In the field of digitization, Netherlands should be the top in Europe, these were the words of Dutch Minister of Security and Justice Mr. Opstelten at the European e-Justice Congress in the Hague on 27th of March 2014. Chairman Pieter Cloo, Secretary General of this Ministry asked all participants to join him on this road to the top.
As an example of electronic cross border contracts, Wim Louwman explained the ELRA project for cross border conveyancing. This was of special interest to the Dutch notaries who attended the Congress. In particular they were interested in the system to obtain cross border assistance for conveyancing in Spain and Portugal. This system enables notaries to collect different types of cross-border information electronically. For more information see: www.e-codex.eu/home.html
