I.1. Website objective

The European Notarial Network (ENN) is a tool for notaries having practical questions with a cross-border element. It covers the 22 EU Member States that have civil law notaries. A contact point is available to help notaries in each of these 22 countries.

As a "one-stop platform", the ENN IT Infrastructure will enable notaries in Europe to:

  1. Open an account with secure access (username and password) to the databases and working documents provided by the ENN
  2. Develop tools for notarial cross-border practice and for citizens, for example by creating bilingual forms for use in notarial practice
  3. Have access to reliable, updated and/or new legal information and to various tools for notarial practice, as well as some tools intended for the public
  4. Join specialised networks offering:
    1. An interface with its own thematic forums (discussion groups)
    2. Online communication among members
