The Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) represents the Bars and Law Societies of 46 countries, and through them, more than 1 million European lawyers.
The CCBE represents European Bars and Law Societies in their common interests before European and other international institutions. It regularly acts as a liaison between its members and the European institutions, international organisations, and other legal organisations around the world. Access to justice, the regulation of the profession, the defence of the rule of law, human rights and democratic values are the most important missions of the CCBE.
The CCBE is pleased to have the opportunity to comment on the European Commission proposal (and annex) for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the transfer of proceedings in criminal matters.
The CCBE believes that this is a particularly important opportunity to make submissions in the light of the fact that it is acknowledged by the European Commission that “no impact assessment was carried out for this initiative mainly due to lack of realistic options and limited impacts on citizens and businesses”.
