Proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on a computerised system for communication in cross-border civil and criminal proceedings (e-CODEX system), and amending Regulation (EU) 2018/1726
The report of the European Parliament on the proposal was discussed in the JURI and LIBE Committes. On 14 October 2021, the European Parliament adopted its report and then decided to open interinstitutional negotiations. The decision was later approved in plenary on 20 October 2021.The first political trilogue was held on 9 November 2021 and the second on 8 December 2021. At the second trilogue, the European Parliament and the Council representatives provisionally agreed on a compromised text that still must be approved by the Council and the European Parliament before going through the formal adoption procedure. The provisional text introduces provisions protecting independence of the judiciary, details on the governance and management structure within eu-LISA and possibilities for Member States to contribute to further development of the e-CODEX system. Timing is of particular importance as there needs to be sufficient time between the adoption of the Regulation and the actual transfer to eu-LISA, in order to allow eu-LISA to secure funding and staffing.
