This event was organized by the Federal notarial chamber of Germany each five years, and the very first similar forum is dated 1902. The congress not only serves as the major discussion platform for the German notaries, but also is interesting to numerous foreign guests: representatives of notariats of various countries of continental Europe, experts from other spheres of legal activity, members of scientific community, members of the mass media, etc.

The Russian notariat at the forum 2016 was represented by the president of the Federal notarial chamber of Russia — Konstantin Korsik.

Among foreign guests the representatives of notarial institutes of France, Spain, Switzerland, Estonia and other countries of Europe were also marked out.

The central theme of the XXIX Congress of notaries of Germany has sounded as “Development and legal safety — the features of notariat determined by the country of its origin”.

Within the program of the forum several round table discussions have been carried out on which the topical legal issues connected with protection of the property right in the real estate market were discussed; the questions of notarial activities arising owing to economic development of the European countries: the new technological capabilities connected with development of information technologies in activities of notaries. The forthcoming International congress of notaries which will pass in October of this year in Paris became one more significant subject of the forum. The congress is the major international event for notaries of the whole world, and in 2016 it will be devoted to legal and social and economic bases of notarial activities, and also technical and legal aspects of information exchange within notarial practice.
