Training on the changes to the Law on Enforcement and Security

Amendments to the Law on Enforcement and Security have been adopted in July, while their implementation is set to start as of January 1, 2020. In order to make sure that all individuals and institutions that make up the enforcement system in Serbia are ready for the start of implementation, the USAID Rule of Law Project, together with the Ministry of Justice and the Judicial Academy, and with technical assistance from our partners ‘Alterfact’, will deliver training on the topic of changes to the Law on Enforcement and Security.

Between October and December 2019, the Project will organize 10 one-day training sessions intended for the judges of the basic, higher, and commercial courts, and public enforcement officers. Training participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the following:

  • Changes to the general provisions of the Law on Enforcement and Security
  • Legal remedies and real estate as a means of enforcement
  • New concept of the real estate auction in the enforcement procedure and changes regarding other means of enforcement and security
  • Summary enforcement procedure and voluntary debt settlement proceedings prior to initiating enforcement (soft collection)
  • Electronic notice board

Training sessions are scheduled for October in Belgrade (October 1, 2019), Nis (October 7, 2019) and Novi Sad (October 25, 2019).

The USAID Rule of Law Project provided support to the Ministry of Justice in drafting amendments to the Law through an inclusive process within the working group which included representatives of all enforcement stakeholders. The Project continues this support through training, as well as through the development of an application that will allow the functioning of an electronic notice board in the enforcement procedure.

The e-Board will allow the citizens to obtain information on any writs being served to them within an enforcement procedure by simply accessing a web service created for the purpose and forgoing the need for physically accessing the notice board in the court. This will allow a simpler and quicker access to justice while allowing both the creditors and debtors to react in a timely manner in all stages of the enforcement procedure.
