In accordance with the terms of reference of the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ), a comparative study on the impact of the Internet and new technologies on rules of evidence and modes of proof before the courts (primarily in areas of civil and administrative law proceedings) is being conducted.

A questionnaire focusing only on challenges and procedural changes has been developed to collect the relevant information from member states and associations of legal practitioners to complete this study.

The questionnaire above-mentioned was disseminated to member states and associations of legal practitioners and made available on this website so that those interested and involved in the field of digital evidence had the opportunity to participate in the findings of the comparative study by replying to the questionnaire.

The study, completed at the end of 2015, took into account views exchanged during the CDCJ plenary meeting (Strasbourg, 28-30 October 2015) and information submitted.  The Committee, at its next meeting (16-18 November 2016) will consider the conclusions to the study.
