Generation of national ECLI (ECLI syntax)

The ECLI identifier was introduced in the Czech Republic in April 2012 for designating judgments of the Supreme Court (Nejvyšší soud).

Judgments of these courts are searchable using the ECLI identifier on the court websites (Supreme Court judgments at and Constitutional Court judgments at

Country code

[CZ]: Country code for the Czech Republic.

Court codes

[NS]: Nejvyšší soud (Supreme Court of the Czech Republic).

[US]: Ústavní soud (Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic).

Example of ECLI identifier for Czech court decisions

ECLI:CZ:NS:2012:spisová značka.1

[CZ] country code (CZ for the Czech Republic);

[NS] is the code of the court that rendered the judgment (NS for the Supreme Court);

[2012] indicates the year the judgment was rendered;

[spisová značka] (case number) does not contain spaces or forward slashes; these are replaced by a dot;

number [1] is the ordinal number of a judgment with the same case number. Inclusion of the ordinal number ensures that the same ECLI identifier is not used to designate more than one judgment from one court in the same year.
