EJIS – Judicial Interoperability and Security Schema

EJIS (Judicial Interoperability and Security Scheme) is the result of the collaboration agreement between the Ministry of Justice, the General Council of the Judiciary, the State Attorney General’s Office and the Autonomous Communities with transferred management powers in the field of justice, given the need to create a framework of collaboration for the harmonious and cohesive operation of its various systems and technological applications, aimed at providing a more agile and efficient public justice service.

With the reference of the National Security and Interoperability Schemes derived from the development of Law 11/2007, the EJIS establishes an equivalent framework derived from the development of Law 18/2011.

The EJIS project has the following general objectives:

  • To define the organisational, semantic-legal and technical framework for the integrated and joint operation of all the computer applications at the service of the Administration of Justice.
  • Identify opportunities for improvement (efficiency, effectiveness, quality and cost reduction) in ICT that contribute to optimising the functioning of the Administration of Justice.
  • Reduce redundant actions and prevent duplication of efforts, promoting the collaboration of the competent administrations.

The project, with a budget of seven million euros, distributed in 2010, 2011 and 2012, has involved the formation of a joint working team led by the General Subdirectorate of New Technologies of Justice (SGNTJ).
