On 15 December, we organised a conference with the Russian Federal Notarial Chamber on the theme “Notariat facing the challenges of the pandemic and digitisation”. About 20 participants who met in two meeting rooms, in France and Russia, were able to exchange and share their experiences through a videoconferencing system coupled with simultaneous interpretation. A new digital notarial law comes into force in Russia on 29 December 2020.

On February 4, we organized an online conference entitled “Civil society, a vehicle for the influence of the Francophonie: assets and limits”. The discussions showed the great diversity of the Francophone, legal, economic and political universes and their essential roles in co-building the Francophonie of tomorrow. This event follows on from the resolution of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council of January 12, 2021 which considers it essential that the 18th Francophonie Summit in Djerba in November 2021 be an opportunity to recognize the imperative of the link with organized civil society and citizens

A history written together

1948

Our international work reached a turning point when we decided, alongside 18 other countries (Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba,  Ecuador, Italy, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland and Uruguay), to create the International Union of Notaries (www.uinl.org). It now has 89 members!

1992

The Association of French-Speaking Notaries (Association du notariat francophone – ANF) created in Paris (www.notariat-francophone.org). France was one of the founding members.

1993

New turning point: a Conference of Notaries of the European Union created, to replace the Conference of Presidents. It brought together all notarial professions from the European Union, including France as one of the founding members. In 2006, it became the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (www.cnue.eu).

2001

Opened the Sino-French Centre for Legal and Notarial Training and Exchanges in Shanghai, with the Shanghai Office of Justice. The result? More than 5,000 Chinese notaries have been trained. (www.cnfr-notaire.org)

2016

Organised the third Congress of the International Union of Notaries in Paris, in the presence of the French, Serbian and Georgian Ministers of Justice.
