The European Judicial Network in criminal matters (EJN criminal) is a network of national contact points in the EU Member States designated among central authorities and other competent authorities, with specific responsibilities in the field of judicial cooperation in criminal matters.
The Compendium is used to draft requests for judicial cooperation between EU countries.
Cooperation with non-EU countries and judicial networks
Apart from its close relations with the EU candidate and associated countries, the European Judicial Network has also established relations with other judicial networks and several non-EU countries across the world.
The Fiches Belges is a tool that provides practical information on specific sets of measures that are covered by judicial cooperation in criminal matters.
Information about national systems
In the Info about national systems page of the European Judicial Network website there are links to information on the judicial systems of countries linked to EJN.
