Public Consultation on transnational successions


Objective of the consultation

The Commission has adopted a Green Paper on transnational successions, to launch a vast process of consulting all interested circles on all the questions currently raised by successions in the EU.

The Green Paper looks into matters such as the ways and means of removing administrative and practical obstacles facing individuals wishing to have for instance, their status as heir, recognised abroad. The idea of establishing a "European certificate of inheritance" is mooted.
