Αντικείμενο: The project aims to address the existing information gap on enforcement procedures, requirements, competence, costs and timing in the EU-28 MS (29 enforcement systems). The first barrier to judicial cooperation that is addressed through this project is the lack of open, reliable and updated information on enforcement agents and enforcement procedures, and their costs. To this moment, the available information on enforcement methods, the application of the enforcement procedures and the connected enforcement costs per Member State is hardly available outside such Member State. The European Judicial Atlas in Civil and Commercial Matters/ the European e-Justice Portal includes limited, and very general, information on the practical aspects of enforcement and the legislation and procedures applicable in each member state, which are by no means sufficient to provide reliable information to citizens or professionals interested in enforcing their decisions in another member states. The Find A Bailiff (FAB) initiative ( on the other hand that aims to extend the existing European directory of bailiffs/enforcement authorities to cover all 28 Member States and integrate it into the European Commission e-Justice portal is at present neither fully operational nor ensures full coverage nor offers reliable information on professional enforcement agents (by interconnecting national directories). The proposed project complements the FAB by collecting and making available information on the services offered by enforcement agents and the conditions for their provision.
