In February 2017, the Maltese notariat became the 20th member of the ENRWA. The association, whose aim is to interconnect all the registers of wills satisfying the principles of the Basel Convention, thus expands in Europe. The ENRWA also manages an interconnection of registers of European Certificates of Succession (ECSs), the aim of which is to link all the existing registers within the Member States bound by the European regulation on cross-border successions.
According to Mr BUGEJA, the President of the Notarial Council of Malta, joining the ENRWA will enhance mutual cooperation between the notariats and increase the efficiency of exchanges for the benefit of European citizens. Welcoming Malta’s membership, the ENRWA President, Mr GIRARD, wishes to begin discussions as soon as possible regarding interconnection with this notariat and the administration that manages the register of wills.
