The role of consignments is to keep the amounts and securities which are entrusted.
Consignments offer a simple and effective protection service for the rights of natural and legal persons. Consignment consists of receiving and keeping amounts or securities due to a creditor, who is not able or does not want to receive them. It can only apply to cash or securities. The modalities are defined by a text (legal or regulatory), an administrative decision, or even a judicial decision.
It applies to very diverse areas: legal disputes, unclaimed assets, environmental financial guarantee, etc. There are over 160 cases of consignments. Moreover, until they reach adulthood, the Paris consignments agency keeps the earnings of children who work in shows or modelling. http://consignations.caissedesdepots.fr/
