Amendment of EU Jurisdiction and Enforcement Regulation (Green Paper)

The EU Commission opens up a consultation on possible amendments of the European Jurisdiction and Enforcement Regulation [“Brussels I“ / (EC) No. 44/2001]. It instigates a discussion on how to abolish conflicts of jurisdiction and impediments to the enforcement of court decisions in the international legal order.


The Commission’s considerations to abolish impediments to civil procedures to facilitate a fast, economic and effective enforcement of claims in the EU are to be mainly welcomed from an economic and a legal point of view. However, the Commission's plans to introduce "collective redress" are to be rejected.
