European directory of notaries revamped

The Council of the Notariats of the European Union today unveiled the new version of its European Directory of Notaries. Created in 2011 and available in 23 languages, the Directory lists the approximately 40,000 notaries of Europe across the 22 countries of the European Union that are familiar with the notarial system. It gives access to the notaries’ contact details and also lists the languages spoken. The ideal tool for citizens seeking a notary’s help for their international transactions, such as buying a property, settling a succession or setting up a company.

The technical infrastructure is very easy to use, making it even easier and faster for users to find the information they are looking for. First, visitors to the website must complete at least one of the following search criteria: the place (country, region, city, etc.), the language spoken or the name of the notary. They can then consult a list of notaries corresponding to their criteria with a geolocation of their offices. Once users have made their choice, they have access to the notary’s contact details (postal address, telephone, email, website, etc.). If they wish, they can request an appointment by filling out a contact form. Thus

Me Pierre-Luc Vogel, president of the CNUE, said :

The European Directory of Notaries is the result of a long-standing partnership with the European Union, which has provided financial support for its creation. Like the European institutions, we are working to develop tools to facilitate citizens’ cross-border procedures. The European Directory of Notaries is the tangible demonstration of this commitment
