Evaluation Board of Court Experts

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Partly as a result of a number of serious court errors in which insufficient quality of forensic expertise played a role, the Expert in Criminal Matters Act (Wds) came into force in 2010. The law has the purpose of contributing to the enhancement of the quality of the input of experts in the administration of justice. The Netherlands Register of Court Experts (hereinafter: NRGD), established with the Wds and which is administered by the Board of Court Experts (hereinafter: Board), has determined to make an important contribution to this objective.
The Board is an independent administrative body. Because the law requires independent administrative bodies to be evaluated every five years, and the last evaluation took place in 2014 (Evaluation of the Dutch Register of Court Experts).
