EU/LV: The ‘Register of Enforcement Cases’ system has become operational
2 - Summary:
The Latvian Court Administration has implemented the ‘Register of Enforcement Cases’ project, which was developed as part of the European Commission’s specific programme ‘Civil Justice’; its aim is to facilitate the work of bailiffs, speed up the enforcement of court decisions, increase efficiency and reduce the administrative costs.
3 - Description:
The main objective of the project was to technically improve the processing of data pertaining to the enforcement of court decisions by providing up-to-date information on enforcement cases and any progress made in this regard.
In order to achieve the objectives of the project, the following steps have been taken:
The system was developed and transferred to the production environment on 2 January 2012. Through the portal, the user can register an enforcement case in a centralised system and get connected to the executive office of cases, which deals with related activities, such as correspondence, deposits and other written material, as well as perform several other functions.
An ongoing work is taking place in order to increase the portal’s functionality; it has thus been planned to create functionalities that will enable data exchange among several information systems, such as: information systems of commercial banks, vehicle database held by the Road Traffic Safety Directorate, information systems held by the Register of Enterprises, information systems held by the Public Journal of Latvia, registry of the State Revenue Service, the State Unified Computerised Land Register, etc.
The Ministry of Justice and the Court Administration invites bailiffs to adopt the information system in order to optimise and speed up their work by circulating information and orders electronically, reducing this way the administrative costs as well as their workload. Trainings for all bailiffs about how to use the system were organised during the implementation period of the project.
80 % from the total project budget was financed by the European Commission, whereas 20 % was funded by the state budget of Latvia.
