Conference – Ensuring legal certainty in exceptional circumstances – 2 november 2020
On the occasion of the European Day of Justice and in the framework of the European Notarial Network, the Bundesnotarkammer and the CNUE are jointly organising a conference online and in Berlin on 2 November on the topic of “Ensuring legal certainty in exceptional circumstances”. On this occasion, the German Minister of Justice and Consumer Protection, Christine Lambrecht, has confirmed her participation in the opening ceremony.
The central question of the conference will be how to ensure legal certainty and provide efficient access to non-tariff services in the digital age. Notaries will have to innovate and digitise their procedures and ensure that Member States create modern and fast procedures for the preventive administration of justice, especially with regard to public registers. But beyond that, it will be shown that notaries play a key role in protecting privacy and keeping basic information on key economic rights (such as ownership of real estate or ownership and management of companies) under reliable, impartial and demonstrably secure public control.
The first part of the conference will present the experiences of notaries during the pandemic in different circumstances in the different Member States and will explore new digital tools such as video conferencing, electronic identity card access and management and highly secure digital storage systems. This part will end with the presentation of a prototype developed by the Bundesnotarkammer for the use of blockchain technology in the notaries’ working environment.
The second part of the conference will give representatives of European notariats the opportunity to present their national digitisation projects, thus encouraging participants from other Member States to attend.
The closing panel of the conference will bring together representatives from the political, legal-technical and notarial worlds.
The registration form is open until 28 October.
