2. to facilitate the exchange of data and the structured, confidential and data-protection-compliant communication between the authorities appointed under EU legislation (e.g. central authorities) or otherwise active in the context of EU legislation (e.g. courts, bailiffs), including electronic transmission of documents, requests for information, hearing of the parties and witnesses across borders in the application of EU legislation;

3. to exchange best practices in the field of insolvency and pre-insolvency proceedings, taking also into account the Commission recommendation of 12.3.2014 on a new approach to business failure and insolvency (2014/135/EU)
