Notaries of Europe gather in Spain to improve consumer protection in the digital environment and company mobility

From 5 to 7 October, notaries from 22 EU countries will gather in the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela for the Congress organised by the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE) on “EU Law at the Service of Citizens”. The current President of the CNUE, which represents more than 40,000 notaries in Europe, is a Spanish notary, Mr José Manuel García Collantes.

The opening ceremony will take place on Thursday 5 October at 11.30.

More than 600 notaries will attend this fourth Congress, along with senior officials of the European and Spanish institutions, representatives of consumer and business organisations and other legal practitioners. During several roundtables, they will discuss and present proposals to the European authorities on two topics: protecting citizens and consumers in the digital environment and transferring company seat in the European Union.
