The 6th 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 12 September 2022. This project is supported by the UNIDROIT Foundation and Aviareto.
The Workshop had 35 participants, 17 of which participated in-person. Following the publication of a Guide on Best Practices for Electronic Collateral Registries, the BPER Project is presently working towards the preparation of a Guide on Best Practices for Electronic Business Registries. The 6th Workshop featured a review of a preliminary structure for the Guide on Electronic Business Registries, as well as discussions on questions of scope, differences between business registries and collateral registries, and the structure of the guide on business registries. Furthermore, the Workshop also examined Critical Performance Factors for business registries, received input from international organisations and practitioners, and drew comparisons with other international instruments in this area.
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.
