The CEHJ has been awarded a European grant by the European Commission to enlarge the database of the European Directory of Bailiffs with the contact details of the competent Bailiffs in the different Member States, in partnership with the Bulgarian association Judicial Enforcement Development Initiative (JEDI) and the Ministry of justice of Italia.
This project, named « Find a Bailiff II » (FAB II) ,aims at extending the directory of bailiffs/judicial officers to all the professionals of enforcement in the European Union countries: – To enhance existing cross-border cooperation between the parties involved in civil proceedings in Europe , and to facilitate the access to justice for European citizen and firms, enabling them to identify the appropriate bailiff/judicial officer to implement the judicial procedures they are in charge of.
« Find a Bailiff II » which should start in September 2016, has a total budget of 454.000 €, including 361 000 € from European Union.
Development costs of the national electronic directories and the European directory connector will be funded 80% by European funds; The CEHJ will provide legal and technical support for the implementation of these tools. The directory will then be integrated into the e-justice portal of the European Commission (tag “Find a Bailiff”) once the project completed and will be very relevant for the implementation of the EU Regulation on European account preservation order (to be in force in January 2017) and the European Directory of Bailiffs should be integrated to the e-Justice portal of the European commission
