Counting Down to 29 January 2019


ELI President Christiane Wendehorst is Key Speaker at CNUE-European Commission Conference in Brussels (Belgium) on 23 October 2018.

29 January 2019 marks the date when new rules on property regimes for international couples will enter into force. In anticipation of that date ELI Institutional Observer, the Notaries of Europe (CNUE) organised a joint conference with the European Commission in Brussels on 23 October 2018.

Speaking about the new rules, which only apply to 18 countries so far, President Wendehorst said she was ‘happy to see these regulations’, and branded them an ‘achievement’ that will usher in ‘great benefits’ to international couples in Europe. President Wendehorst is one of the co-reporters on the ELI’s joint project on the same theme: Empowering European Families: Towards More Party Autonomy in European Family and Succession Law.
