Objective(s) Learning from the 6 pilot courts on the measures implemented in view of improving their efficiency and quality and preparing hte final report. 
Output/Results Experts of the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) conducted a mission to the Republic of Moldova, on 31 January - 1 February 2017. The expert team met with representatives from the Ministry of Justice, the Superior Council of Magistrates and six pilot courts, who reported on the measures implemented by the courts in view of improving their efficiency and quality.

Moldovan pilot courts, including the Supreme Court of Justice and some of the busiest appellate and first instance courts of the country, are following up on court coaching reports developed by the CEPEJ experts and containing an in-depth analysis of the concerned courts’ performance and recommendations in line with European best court management practices. During the last months, the courts draw up yearly activity reports based on CEPEJ-recommended efficiency and quality indicators, analysed their own performance and put together action plans for institutional development. The courts also conducted satisfaction surveys for users, lawyers and court employees, in a move to evaluate the quality of services based on the perception of users and staff. The results of the surveys were also carefully analysed and objectives fixed in response to the concerns or needs exposed by users. The achievements of the pilot courts will be taken into consideration for dissemination of good practices and implementation of CEPEJ tools in all courts of Moldova. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The Superior Council of Magistrates of the Republic of Moldova was presented in its session of 28 February 2017 an account of the progress and achievements of the Project ''Strengthening the efficiency of justice and support to lawyer’s profession in the Republic of Moldova'', which is part of the CoE/EU Eastern Partnership Programmatic Cooperation Framework 2015-2017, financed by the European Union and implemented by the Council of Europe.

The Council unanimously supported a follow up to the current project for the purpose of disseminating throughout the entire national court system the lessons learned and good practices achieved by the pilot courts.
