The European Network of Registers of Wills Association

The Association

The European Network of Registers of Wills Association is an international not-for-profit association governed by Belgian law, created in 2005 by the Belgian, French and Slovenian Notariats.

In compliance with the Basel Convention relating to the establishment of a system for the registration of wills of May 16, 1972, the States which have a register for the recording of wills and which adhere to the ARERT can interconnect these registers, thus enabling all European citizens to discover the wills left by any deceased person regardless of the country in which such will was registered.
