EJN Launched Updated E-tools

On 9 February 2023, the EJN launched its improved, more user-friendly e-tools Atlas, Fiches Belges, and Compendium. The tools are tailored to assist practitioners in drafting and sending requests for mutual legal assistance. They are publicly available on the EJN website without prior authorisation for use.

  • Atlas helps practitioners find the competent authority in the EU Member States and Norway for communicating a request, depending on the required investigative/procedural measure;
  • Fiches Belges contain concise and practical information on the national regulation of investigative/procedural measures such as, for instance, the European Arrest Warrant or the European Investigation Order;
  • Compendium is intended to facilitate the drafting of a request directly via the EJN website, automatically completing those parts of the form that require the population of the details of the relevant competent authorities. The forms can also be printed and sent.
