Playing field

All stakeholders in the criminal justice system are involved in the development of quality improvement of expert opinions: the forensic expert and professional organisation, the Public Prosecution Service, judges, defence lawyers, the NRGD, the legislator and the European Commission.

All are involved in drawing up quality frameworks for expert opinions. NRGD is only a part of this process.

Currently, NRGD only registers experts who are active in the field of criminal law. However, the Register is likely to expand to the fields of civil and administrative law soon. NRGD is collaborating with other registers of forensic experts from professional bodies and organisations for this purpose. In addition, NRGD supports and participates in various national and international projects aiming at improving quality.
