The Registrar of the Court of Justice, under the authority of the President of the Court, is responsible for all the departments of the Court.
The departments are in three main groups: the administrative support services, in the Directorate-General for Administration; the language services, in the Multilingualism Directorate-General; and the information services, in the Information Directorate-General.
The Research and Documentation Directorate and the Protocol and Visits Directorate are under the direct control of the Registrar of the Court.
Those departments support the work of both courts, each of which also has its own registry. The registries are responsible for the efficient handling of cases, as well as the receipt, notification and retention of all procedural documents.
