2. Why apply for registration?


The ‘Experts in Criminal Cases Act’ came into effect on 1 January 2010. Since then, commissioning parties have had the legal obligation to provide reasons when they do not use the register. The commissioning parties can use the register to quickly check whether an expert is qualified. The register enables experts to show that their expertise is objectively acknowledged. As a registered expert you are assessed carefully by an independent and expert committee. This results in a public and legal acknowledgement of your expertise.

4. How long will the registration procedure take?


Although we understand that it would be reassuring for you to know how long the registration procedure will take in total, this is difficult to predict.

The received applications will be assessed in clusters. For the first round, we would like to receive your applications before the 28th of March 2016.

After the first assessments, all registered experts will be published on the NRGD website at the same time. The second round of assessments will take place after the summer period.

The NRGD strives to process the registration procedure as swiftly as possible. If you have any questions about the procedure you are welcome to contact one of our colleagues at the NRGD. The NRGD will be pleased to assist you filling in your application.
