Further enhancement of accountability and professionalism of notaries in Montenegro

The baseline study on accountability and professionalism of notaries in Montenegro was presented on 21 June 2020 to the notaries gathered at the seminar organised by the Chamber of Notaries in Montenegro.

The Council of Europe consultants, in the framework of the action “Accountability and professionalism of the judicial system in Montenegro” which is implemented under the joint European Union and the Council of Europe programme “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022”, prepared the baseline study which reflected the current state of play and recommended steps forward to strengthening accountability in the notary profession.

Presentation of the key findings and recommendations of the baseline study triggered discussion among notaries about the policy and practical gaps in implementing disciplinary norms and provisions of the Code of Notary Ethics focusing on potential changes in notaries’ accountability framework, both from legislative and ethical perspective.

According to the Report on the work of notaries in 2019, there are in total 55 notaries having their offices distributed around 15 Montenegrin municipalities.
