Position of the Notaries of Europe on the Post-Stockholm Programme


In ever-increasing numbers, European citizens are living, studying, marrying, divorcing and dying in a Member State other than that in which they were born, a situation which is bound to lead to a range of legal complications.

It is for this reason that the CNUE applauded the approach adopted by the European Commission which took account of this situation and made the citizen the focus of Community activity in its communication dated 10 June 2009 with regard to the Stockholm Programme.

Although significant efforts have been made and many projects have been implemented (the regulation on international successions, the revision of the Brussels I regulation, etc.), the Notaries of Europe wish to publish their opinion on a variety of matters which they feel will be of priority interest to the citizens of Europe in the years to come.
