The 27th Notarial Colloquium of Central Europe was organised by the National Chamber of Hungarian Notaries on 2-7 November on the southern banks of Lake Balaton, in Siófok, under the patronage of Dr László Trócsányi, Minister of Justice. At this annual event – the main topic of which was succession law, a topical subject with the European regulation becoming applicable – the Hungarian Chamber received 650 participants, a record compared to previous years. Aside from Hungarian lawyers, magistrates and academics, the Austrian, Czech, French, German, Romanian and Slovakian notariats were represented during the three days.
The Hungarian notariat was also honoured to welcome the President of the Notaries of Europe, Jean Tarrade, who, in his opening speech, mentioned the challenge created by the European regulation on successions, the difficulties to adopt the two proposals for European regulations on matrimonial property regimes and registered partnerships, the CNUE’s satisfaction with the agreement reached in trilogue concerning the proposals for a regulation to simplify the acceptance of certain public documents in the European Union and the SUP issue.
