Given that the ECRIS system still preserves its initial technical architecture, the present development has to be approached from a different angle in order to revamp the application by using the latest technology as to increase its  capabilities and  to fully respond to the last major legislative changes brought by the enforcement of the new judicial codes.  As such,  the performance of the ECRIS software will be greatly increased and it will be made  more user-friendly.” 
 
The implementation of the three justice programmes will significantly contribute to strengthening the bilateral relations between Romania and the Kingdom of Norway in the area of justice, considering the number of fields in which the specialists from the two countries will cooperate.
