The justice system has become more sensitive towards infringements of its new own ethical standards. The efforts in bringing the judiciary closer to the values of the European Union have resulted in a new code of ethics, a new training concept in this field and an ethics committee, which advises judges on ethical questions. The administration of justice and quality of the justice act has been increased through several measures like for example the specialisation of judges in pilots courts and contribution to a new version of ICMS, the “Integrated Case Management Software”. The judiciary has developed with the help of ATRECO a own communication strategy and a network of communicators for its implementation. Public relations with citizens and mass media have been strengthened and a system for constant customer feedback has been sent up. The Agency for Court Administration has been enabled to produce needs steered planned for new court infrastructure in line with best international practices.
