e-CODEX, a new European legal information systems interoperability project, apparently coordinated by the European Commission Directorate-General Justice, has been described on a new Website.
e-CODEX appears to be intended to “support the further development of the European e-Justice portal,” and to carry out interoperability goals expressed in “The Council Action Plan on European e-Justice,” and the European Commission’s report, “Towards a European e-Justice Strategy.”
According to the Website, the project will work on the following topics/functions:
- “e-Identity-management for natural and legal persons, roles,
mandates and rights, user authentication and authorization
- e-Signatures, verification and implementation
- e-Filing, exchange of documents and data
- document standards.”
