“EU enforcement atlas” is a two-year project, co-funded by the European Union’s Directorate General Justice and Consumers, designed to facilitate and support judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters. The project is innovative both in terms of concept and method: it contributes a pragmatic insight to accessing information, reducing costs and delays and enables both legal professionals and general public to make well-informed choices with regard to cross-border enforcement.

The project is a pragmatic contribution to cross border cooperation in judicial enforcement and offers comprehensive, reliable and openly accessible information on enforcement procedures, competencies, costs and duration in all member states. To achieve this the project will identify and collect information on enforcement legislation and procedures in the EU; validate and compile this information in a uniform, accessible and user friendly format; make this information available online; integrate it with the European Judicial Atlas in Civil and Commercial Matters under the European e-Justice Portal; launch the European Enforcement Atlas at EU level through a European roundtable on the future of enforcement of claims and disseminate its results by designing an information campaign held through the internet, social media and national chambers, targeting judicial officers, lawyers, notaries and stakeholders across the EU.
