On 19 and 20 September 2013, the Congress of Notaries of Belgium brought together 600 participants in Genk on the topic “Work and Relationships”.
EUFides was launched officially in Belgium on this occasion. During her inaugural speech, Lorette Rousseau, President of the Royal Federation of the Belgian Notariat, told Belgian notaries that EUFides “makes it possible to work in a secure environment with foreign colleagues when dealing with cross-border cases”.
The EUFides system is based on a secure exchange platform that enables foreign colleagues to share documents in cross-border cases.
André Michielsens, Vice-President of the Notaries of Europe: “Eufides is the European notarial cloud. It is reliable and secure. In addition, it ensures that messages are exchanged immediately and it enables their authors to be identified, whilst guaranteeing the integrity of the content.” The Belgian, French, Luxembourg and Spanish notariats are already using EUFides.
There was an information stand at the congress, presenting the platform. A good way of taking some first steps on the platform and performing simulations on files relating to cross-border real estate transactions with a virtual foreign colleague.
