New content for the “Vulnerable People in Europe” website
The “Vulnerable people in Europe” website now has a fully updated “adults” section. This website, produced with the support of the European Union and the European Notarial Network, provides citizens with information on protection measures for vulnerable persons in the 22 European countries covered by the CNUE. Available in two languages (English and French), it is divided into two sections: one on protection measures for minors, the other for adults.
The new “adults” section now includes two parts per country:
– One on protection measures for adults who have lost capacity in the country concerned. The question of the adaptation of national laws to the Hague Convention of 13 January 2000 is addressed.
– The other on the possibilities or otherwise of anticipating a future loss of capacity in the country concerned.
Once again, two levels of information are available: one for a non-specialist audience, the other to meet the needs of notaries for precise answers in their daily practice when they find themselves, in particular, in cross-border situations.
