The Judicial Documentation Centre (CENDOJ) is the technical body of the General Council of the Judiciary tasked with the official publication of the jurisprudence, along with the other competences in the sphere of documentation and of knowledge management services. It offers support and information services to the members of the judicial profession, by facilitating their access to any type of document sources used in the carrying out of the judicial activity.
The CENDOJ provides the legal ecosystem with the jurisprudence generated by Spanish courts, while protecting the privacy of the personal data contained in the rulings.
The CENDOJ needs to comply with the Data Protection Act and provide a legal information service, while ensuring maximum speed in publication and the quality of the results.
Serikat performs an automated anonymisation and cataloguing process, in other words, the data holder is dissociated from the information contained in the rulings. That takes place with full clarity, coherence and consistency.
The results so far are more than 6 million rulings processed, 1,500 a day with over 70 million anonymised pages with an SLA of over 99% success.
Thus, the legal rulings may be published with open access as the legal authority complies with the principle of transparency, fully respecting the privacy of the people, but always ensuring the maximum clarity and understanding of each of the legal rulings.
