In the context of the CNUE’s work, the free movement of acts has always been the subject of discussions by the member notariats. This movement has also been said to be a key principle in the policies of the Notaries of Europe. The authentic act is and remains a strength and a major asset of the notarial profession in the European Union. It is also a tool that can constitute a vector to strengthen the tangible nature for European citizens of the construction of the area of justice, freedom and security foreseen in the EC Treaties. The revision of the Brussels I Regulation provides an opportunity to reaffirm these principles and to facilitate the movement of authentic acts within the EU.
