Response from the European notariat to the Green Paper on the revision of the Brussels I Regulation


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.
