The system of enforcement of court decisions in civil and administrative matters in the Republic of Moldova will mark soon 10 years since switching to the institute of private judicial officers (bailiffs).

Currently, the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Moldova and the National Union of Bailiffs are undertaking joint efforts to improve the evaluation of the performance of the system, to modernise the case management, and to increase the efficiency and the quality of enforcement services.

In this framework, a team of experts from the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) and the International Union of Judicial Officers (UIHJ) carried out on 2-3 March 2020 a mission to support further development of the Moldovan system of enforcement of court decisions in civil and administrative matters. The visit included a round table on the CEPEJ recommendations and the best practices in Europe with regard to the methodology of evaluating the performance of bailiffs, the related indicators of efficiency and quality, the time management tools etc. On 3 March a workshop dedicated to new technologies and cyber justice tools at the service of the enforcement systems was conducted dealing on issues such as the integrated case management systems or the registers of enforceable documents and procedures, as well as the on-line platforms for auctioning of seized goods.

This activity implemented in the framework of the European Union / Council of Europe joint programme “Support to further strengthening the efficiency and quality of the judicial system in the Republic of Moldova”, which is part of the 2019-2021 “Partnership for Good Governance for Eastern Partnership countries” (PGGII), are co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
