July 2017: launch of EBOCS II project

With the financial support of the Internal Security Fund (ISF) Police Annual Work Programme 2016, EBR has launched the second phase of the EBOCS project.

The ultimate deliverable for EBOCS II is to extend and further develop the initial pilot of the EBOCS, in which four funded business registers (Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Romania), and a number of Financial Intelligence Units and business registry domain organisations participated.

It is expected that the extended pilot phase covered by the grant will enable the participating users to immediately analyse at an operational level the information in the participating business registers. The funding body and Counter Crime Agencies (“CCAs”) believe that this will translate into huge time savings in the intelligence and investigation activities. It will no longer be necessary for CCAs and other authorities to consult foreign registers directly, or ask foreign counterparts for information and stall the analysis or investigation until the information is received.

The project extension will run for a 12-month period officially commencing on 3 July 2017 through to 2 July 2018.

The project, led by EBR, will be implemented by the following partners: Enterprise Registry Solution Limited (Ireland); Infocamere Scpa (Italy); Registrite ja Infosüsteemide Keskus (Estonia); Oficiul National al Registrului Comertului (Romania); Lursoft IT – Sabiedrība ar ierobežotu atbildību “Lursoft” (Latvia); Colegio de Registradores de la Propriedad y Mercantiles de Espana (Spain); Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore Milano – Transcrime (Italy); PJMF Services (Ireland); SBB Services (Italy); Tower81 Associates (Ireland).
