The Internet and new technologies have an impact on rules of evidence and modes of proof before the courts. A comparative study on this issue (primarily in areas of civil and administrative law proceedings) has been undertaken (to be published on this website).

As a follow-up action to the study, the CDCJ has prepared draft guidelines aiming at providing practical guidance for the handling of electronic evidence in civil and administrative proceedings to courts and other competent authorities with adjudicative functions; professionals, including legal practitioners; and parties to proceedings. The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe should examine the guidelines at the beginning of 2019 in view of their adoption.
