The plenary of the Chamber approved this Tuesday (31) a provisional measure (MP) that unifies notary systems across the country through the implementation of the Electronic System of Public Records (Serp). The text passed the Senate today and now goes to presidential sanction and includes several changes in legislation on land registration and civil registration.
Serp, in addition to unifying the registry system, will allow records and consultations over the internet. The text of the MP provides for the implementation of the system by January 31, 2023. After implementation, the certificates will be extracted by reprographic or electronic means, that is, the registration officers will be exempt from printing certificates (civil or titles). Electronic certificates must be made using technology that allows the user to print them and identify their authenticity, according to the criteria of the National Council of Justice (CNJ).
According to the measure, the Serp, which must connect the databases of all types of registry offices, will be implemented and managed by public records officers across the country, with mandatory membership. The national system operator will be a private entity, in the form of a non-profit association or foundation, to be regulated by the National Justice Department of the National Justice Council (CNJ).
