UIPAN participates in the convention on digitalization in Palermo


On November 10, 2018, an extraordinary International Convention organized by the Association of Italian Notary Dependents UNIC @ was held in the splendid Ducrot Room of the Grand Hotel «Piazza Borsa», in the city of Palermo, Sicily (Italy).

The title of the convention was PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND SOCIAL PROTECTION, IN THE 21ST CENTURY OF DIGITIZATION AT THE SERVICE OF CITIZENS. The act was moderated by the Vice President of UIPAN and UNIC @, Dina Nicosia, architect and responsible for the organization of the Convention. In his speech he recalled the importance of artificial intelligence today.

In the act we received the institutional greetings by the Councilor for Training of the City of Palermo Dott. Gaspare Nicotri on behalf of Mayor Leoluca Orlando Cascio, Regional Councilor for Education and Education Prof. Roberto Lagalla and Notary Francesco Li Mandri for the Notarial Council of the Districts of Palermo and Termini Imerese.

It was attended by Italian and Sicilian notaries represented in the speeches of Dr. Maurizia Bertoncino, former founder and president of Unic @, now notary in Turin. Prof. Enrico Maccarone, Notary in Palermo, and Dr. Antonina Ferraro, Notary in Canicattì, who encouraged us to continue collaborating with notarial institutions and to continue training.

Then I take the floor the President of UIPAN, Juan Carlos Martínez Ortega, who noted that «The notarial work can not be left exclusively in the hands of digitalization and large computer equipment that facilitate transactions and legal business. Because the technological tools created by man are impersonal, they can not use empathy or evaluate all the circumstances by filling in simple data fields. For this reason, the future of the notarial institution does not only go through digitalization and the internet, although its proper use makes our work easier and can lead to faster documentation resolution delegated to the Notary. As has been said, the future of the Notary is based on ethical, moral and deontological principles, which allow citizens to freely go to notarial offices to resolve their legal matters. «

In addition, he announced there, before an expectant audience that proposed «the integration at international level of ONE INSTITUTION OF EMPLOYEES OF NOTARIES, that is able to attract young colleagues, that is capable of having weight in the institutions and that has power of influence on our legitimate claims.»

Then Ludwig Rasscheart, President of CPNUE, took the floor and indicated where our digital era is headed.

Then, the President of FEAPEN, José Gómez de la Rosa, took the floor, for which, «From a critical point of view, the biggest problem that this process of digitization and automation brings is in the depersonalization that entails and in the loss of the nuances, because not everything is white or black. There are often nuances and circumstances that affect the legal business, which should be taken into account and that can not be reflected in an electronic box with a simple cross. But this is, without a doubt, the price to be paid in favor of the streamlining of legal traffic and technological progress. We will always leave things behind on that path

In similar terms, the Presidents of the Belgian and French Associations, Vicent Vranck and Serge Forest, expressed themselves.

Next, Anne Melloue, President of the Greek Association and Secretary of UIPAN, took the podium, which in her speech stated that «digital work has changed the way we work, but the amount of work and hours of work have not changed», concluding that «digitization has been a benefit for the government, even for notaries, but not for employees».

The fundamental part of the Convention was in charge of Professor Claudio Rorato, Director of the Professional Observatory and Digital Innovation of the Polytechnic University of Milan. In a master class, he was developing the current digital world by putting attendees before the tessitura of two opposite paths by indicating that Digitalization can be seen as «An opportunity» or «A threat», therefore, as all the speakers emphasized the professionalism and the training will make us see the technological changes as an opportunity for the future of the workers in the Notaries

The event was concluded by our distinguished colleague Gabriele Rossetti, President of Unic @ and Vocal of Uipan, stating that «we must recognize that technological innovations have improved, at least in our sector, the response to clients and the notary service, which is made of advice, but also of many practical activities. We must take care of the value that the activity of the notary public provides in the important phases of the lives of people and their families that can not be separated from a social approach «.

UIPAN is grateful to Unic @ for the invitation to this important event for the collective of professionals of Notaries distributed all over the world, and following the words of the President of UIPAN we all contribute to preserve the «essences» of the Notary through our commitment to the notarial institution and our colleagues around the world.

We express to the President Mr. Kohler, our concern for the people who disembark in the Notarial Offices to work, indicating that they have to gather, not only technical and legal requirements, but also values and principles that facilitate the work of legal security that the Notary

It is necessary more than ever the formation of all the human team that forms the structure of the Notary, and that happens, irremediably, by current legal and technological instruction. Continuous training is required to meet the new challenges of our globalized world.

Our representatives delivered the members of CNUE a dossier with our objectives, corporate and training projects.

We explain that CNUE needs UIPAN and vice versa. The European Notary is not limited to a group of legal elite made up of 40,000 Notaries, but, at their side and under their direction, there are more than 200,000 professionals who contribute to the maintenance of the institution.

Together we are more.

We hope that this meeting will involve a greater involvement of CNUE in the training of Notarial workers and that, in a clear and generous manner, they will support financially and corporately all the projects of UIPAN, the World Association of Auxiliaries of Notaries.
