Information Website has Been Launched about the Electronic Communication with Courts and Authorities

Information Website has Been Launched about the Electronic Communication with Courts and Authorities


According to a recent amendment to the Hungarian act on the general rules of electronic administration and confidential services and to its implementing decree, all state organisations providing electronic administration, including all the courts and the National Office for the Judiciary (in Hungarian: “OBH”), must ensure the electronic communication in all matters falling within their competence.

In all contentious and non-contentious proceedings initiated after 1 January 2018, unless otherwise provided by law, the electronic communication is mandatory for business associations, the Hungarian State, local municipalities, budgetary agencies, the public prosecutor, notaries, the public sector organisations and other administrative authorities when acting as clients, and for the legal counsels of the clients.

In order to help the application of the rules on electronic communication, the National Office for the Judiciary launched a subpage named “E-PER 2018”, which provides detailed information about the electronic administration to all the participants in the proceedings. The subpage is accessible here: http://birosag.hu/e-per-2018/e-kapcsolattartas-altalanos-tajekoztato
