In cooperation with the Supreme Court, the Moldovan Association of Judges and the Ministry of Justice, the IRZ organised a training session on 6 and 7 December 2018 on the implementation of the approved Administrative Code, which is due to enter into force on 1 April 2019.

The Administrative Code was described by the Moldovan partners as a great achievement for the entire justice system in Moldova. The key role of administrative jurisdiction, which makes an essential contribution to legal certainty, has therefore once again been made very clear.

The training session was led by IRZ expert Georg Schmidt, President of the Administrative Court of Trier. Georg Schmidt specifically mentioned that the Republic of Moldova has made a major step in the direction of a functioning constitutional state with the approval of the new administrative law. Following a short presentation of the approved Administrative Code, the administrative act as a central feature of the administrative process, along with its enactment, validity, retraction and revocation, were discussed using practical examples.

More than 120 judges, officials from local and central authorities, delegates and representatives of civil society, including lawyers, took an active part in the seminar.

The training measures are set to continue next year.
