The project “RINSEResearch and Information Sharing on freezing and confiscation orders in European Union” is a synergy of 6 Partners across 4 EUMS (Italy, Greece, Belgium and France) aiming to contribute to fostering the mutual recognition of the decisions of EU countries regarding the seizure and confiscation of assets, by enhancing knowledge, competences and skills of judiciary professionals and other key players involved in the Multi-Phase Asset Recovery process.

RINSE started at December 2022 and has a duration of 30 months

It is funded by the Justice Programme of the European Union.



  • increased knowledge and understanding of EU Regulation 2018/1805 and EU Directive 2014/42and their interconnections among judicial and non-judicial professionals.
  • greater understanding of national legislation in terms of the technical, legal and practical aspects of the multi-phase Asset Recovery process.
  • enhanced understanding of the social reuse of confiscated assets through recommendations and best practices sharing.
  • progressive mutual recognition of standards, requirements and practices, allowing for a swifter cooperation and harmonization of cross-border criminal cases.
  • creation of a broad community of practice at EU level in this field.
  • • public administrators enabled to better manage and use the confiscated assets according to broad civic and social values
  • long-term benefitsfor the communities affected by criminal organizations due to strengthened capacity and cooperation of the institutional actors.


The project’s rationale builds on 3 main action pillars:

  • Comparative analysis to identify training needs, weak spots and best practices with regard to national implementation of EU Regulation 2018/1805 and EU Directive 2014/42 in Italy, Greece, Belgium and France
  • Training design and delivery targeting judicial and non-judicial professionals: 7 online modules; 12 national workshops; 1 international workshop; 7 Podcasts
  • Best practices sharing: multilingual materials, 4 Info Days, 4 online Linkekdin events, 1 final conference.
