Digital Efficiency

The core of the program is the creation of a regulatory framework for digitization in the Public Justice Service. Digitalization is one of the pillars of the transformation process and lies behind a large part of the actions to be undertaken. Many projects can be developed because a digital impulse has been made beforehand. For this reason, a new regulatory framework is essential in order to establish the legal basis for the Administration of Justice's digital transformation, thereby replacing the current regulation (in force since 2011) to provide it with a new data-based information architecture that also guarantees digital legal security in the handling of proceedings. To this end, the regulation will establish a new legal framework for the electronic processing of judicial proceedings, addressing basic aspects such as digital signatures, telematic trials, electronic case files and data exchange in the administration of justice. Likewise, digital legal security will be guaranteed with a new regulation on the rights and obligations of citizens and of those groups obliged to interact digitally with the Administration of Justice, including a new data protection regime tailored to the sector. The aim is to promote the Rule of Law in the new digital environment.

Within the new framework, new tools, such as artificial intelligence or digital public faith, will be developed to support the improvement of public service management.
