The inventory process has been the target, in the last decade, of successive and diverse approaches and reforms that admittedly aimed at decongesting the courts, but essentially reducing the pending issues and improving the results of a statistical nature that demonstrated that the inventory actions, on average, were those that took longer to become final. The option established in 2009, which attributed competence to process the inventory process to notary offices, proved to be inadequate, so in 2019, the new regime for the judicial inventory process was inserted in the Civil Procedure Code, although it still exists the residual possibility of the notary inventory. The present study aims to highlight the most substantial changes made in the inventory process and their functions.
