The first meeting of the Executive Committee of the UEHJ was held at its headquarters in Brussels on 31 January 2017. The purpose of the meeting was to organise the taking over of the UEHJ from the UIHJ as regards European Union matters. The Executive Committee immediately set to work. The first work concerns the Stobra projects, starting with the finalisation of the questionnaires on the state of the profession in the European Union concerning seizure of immovable property, service of documents, transparency of assets, statement of facts, information technologies and debt collection. These questionnaires will be distributed shortly to each member state of the UEHJ and will serve as the basis for the Stobra symposium to be held in October 2017.

At the end of the meeting, Emmanuelle Cretin-Magand and Michal Wiktorowicz, representatives of the Directorate-General for Justice of the European Commission, visited the UEHJ headquarters to meet the members of the Executive Committee. Françoise Andrieux presented the UEHJ and the different projects in progress. The representatives of the European Commission expressed their great interest in the creation of the EHU, and the work in progress. They expressed the wish of the European Commission to work closely with the UEHJ.
