Then 5th Workshop for the project on Best Practices in the Field of Electronic Registry Design and Operation (BPER) was organised by the Cape Town Convention Academic Project at the Cavonius Centre, Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge, and on Zoom on 28 September 2021. This project is supported by the UNIDROIT Foundation and Aviareto.
The Workshop had 30 participants, 15 of which participated in-person, and 15 online. After having recently published a Best Practices Guide for Electronic Collateral Registries, the BPER Project is now shifting its focus towards developing best practices for the design and operation of electronic companies’ registries. The 5th Workshop featured a presentation from Julian Lamb (Jersey Financial Services Commission) describing the role played by companies registries and how this has evolved over time, as well as a presentation from Hamza Hameed (Legal Consultant at UNIDROIT) to apply the critical performance factors identified by the Collateral Registries Guide to companies registries.
The Workshop also included input from various national and international organisations involved in the design and operation of companies registries. A full report for the Workshop will be posted in the coming weeks on the website of the Cape Town Convention Academic Project.
