The inclusion of European Case Law Identifier (ECLI) code in Malta
The European Case Law Identifier (ECLI) code has been introduced in Malta for all new judgments through the Courts' applications in use at the Courts of Justice in Malta and Gozo.
The ECLI code is a unique reference number that refers to a judgment both locally and across the EU.
As from December 2011, all new judgments have been included with an ECLI code which is automatically generated by the courts' system. Currently this ECLI code is not visible to the general public however the information is stored on the Courts' website.
