Project LINE specifically aims to facilitate compliance with the requirements of the e-Justice programme in the area of land registration.
The next generation EULIS 2.0 platform is a key deliverable of Project LINE. The technical solution will aim to be sustainable and financially viable, to enable new land registry organisations to cost-effectively connect to the EULIS 2.0 platform. Simultaneously it will be flexible and future-proof for new and evolving national technical land register systems. It will be aligned with the European e-Justice portal and it will offer the chance in the future to be able to provide added-value products/services to the European audience in the future i.e. e-Signatures, e-registration.
Project LINE will run from 1st September 2010 for a 2-year period.
- To gather together the community of official land registry organisations across all EU member states in order to facilitate their participation in and compliance with the European e-Justice programme.
- To deliver the next generation EULIS platform, which is technologically and financially-viable and through which land registry organisations across Europe can provide cross-border services.
- To identify and define a wide-ranging set of land information services and value-added products across Europe for delivery through the European e-Justice portal, which will benefit legal practitioners and professionals associated with the administration of justice in the area of civil law (including solicitors, judges, notaries, bailiffs and other stakeholders) and improve the functioning of the internal market.
- To facilitate cross-border access to and use of legal information on real property to a wide range of users.
- Are you a country in the EU not already involved in Project LINE?
- Or a professional customer with interest in information from other registers abroad?
- Or even a member of the general public with an interest in the conditions for land and property registration in another EU country?
Useful EU links
As Project LINE is supported by the European Commission you may want to read around the wider EU perspective on the Civil Justice programme and initiatives. You can find some links beneath.
European Commission (Directorate General Justice)
The Directorate-General for Justice was created on July 1 2010. It consists of three directorates – Civil Justice, Criminal Justice and Fundamental Rights and Citizenship.
European Union (EU) leaders recognise the need to tackle the problems that sometimes make the judicial and administrative systems of EU Member States complex and incompatible with each other. To enable individuals and companies to exercise their rights in a Member State other than their own, EU leaders laid out three priorities for action: better access to justice, mutual recognition of judicial decisions and increased convergence in the field of procedural law.
Civil Justice Programme
The Civil justice programme will promote the elimination of obstacles to the good functioning of cross-border civil proceedings in the Member States and aims to improve the daily life of individuals and businesses, notably by fostering access to justice. Projects financed under this programme will improve the contacts, exchange of information and networking between legal, judicial and administrative authorities and the legal professions.
European e-Justice Portal
In line with the EU’s objectives, the European e-Justice Portal offers information on many areas to enhance access and transparency into judicial systems in the EU Member States. The Portal was launched in Jul 2010 and is now online for registration.
