Convenant Council for the Judiciary

Employees of the judiciary may encounter intimidation, violence, or other threatening situations because of their profession. In the event of such a foreseeable threat, employees may shield the visiting address of their company or legal entity (with the exception of a bv or nv) in the Business Register. A condition for this is that the professional association of these employees has agreed upon shielding criteria with KVK. The Raad voor de rechtspraak (Council for the Judiciary Netherlands) and KVK have set out these agreements in a covenant.
