The Permanent Bureau is pleased to announce the publication of 21 new translations of the Guide to Good Practice on the Use of Video-Link under the Evidence Convention. With these new translations, the Guide to Good Practice is now available in 23 European Union (EU) languages.
The Guide, originally published in English and French, analyses the latest developments in relation to the use of video-link in the taking of evidence under the HCCH 1970 Evidence Convention, including references to internal law and other international agreements. It also outlines good practices to be followed and reflects the information provided by Contracting Parties in their respective Country Profiles.
The most recent translations of the Guide to Good Practice were made possible through the support of the Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers of the European Commission. The Permanent Bureau thanks the Directorate-General for this generous voluntary contribution.
All language versions of the Guide to Good Practice can be ordered or downloaded via the Publications section of the HCCH website.
