ECDN: Workshop "Debt advice in the light of legal and societal challanges"

Kiel, Freitag, 27. April 2018


Zielgruppe:

Schuldner- und Insolvenzberatungskräfte aus ganz Europa

Inhalt:

Der Workshop findet in englischer Sprache statt.

Background: European legislation has a big influence on the daily work of debt advice. Actually there is a new challenge. By proposal COM (2016) 723 final for a regulation of the European Parliament insolvency procedures shall become easier for small and medium-sized enterprises. The proposal provides for a fresh start already after three years. According to article 1 (3) RL-E the possibility of being debt-free after three years can be extended to private customers by each single member state. The industry argues strictly against this solution.

Discussion: What does this development mean for debt advice? Is there any political action needed? Are there additional professional tools for debt advisors necessary? What experiences exist in the European member states with different insolvency procedures? What kind of influence do the existing insolvency procedures have on the situation of vulnerable groups?
