On 5 June 2023, OLAF signed an agreement which enables the Office to get direct access to legal and financial information held by clerks in France. The cooperation agreement was concluded with the French National Council of Commercial Court Clerks (Conseil National des Greffiers des Tribunaux de Commerce, CNGTC) and GIE Infogreffe. The latter is a service that provides the distribution of legal and economic information on business companies on behalf of all of the Registries of all French commercial courts. OLAF is now able to have (real-time) access to information from the trade and companies register and to other legal registers. Such agreements are important for OLAF’s work since gathering of data for operational analyses is becoming more efficient and faster.
