Online dispute resolution mechanisms
In 2016 a study was undertaken on the feasibility for the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) to undertake an activity on online dispute resolution (ODR) mechanisms with reference to Articles 6 and 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
As a follow-up to this feasibility study, the CDCJ decided to start, in 2017, work on the preparation of a technical study as a first step of the activity. This technical study has been completed and presented to CDCJ at its 93rd plenary meeting (14-16 November 2018) which approved its publication on its website. The activity will be continued with the preparation, by the end of 2020, of draft guidelines aiming at ensuring the compatibility of ODR mechanisms with Articles 6 and 13 of the ECHR.
