Revising the Taking of Evidence Regulation

27-05-2019

On 31 May 2018, the Commission proposed a proposal for a new regulation on taking of evidence in civil proceedings. It takes stock of the existing regulation (from 2001), but provides for a number of changes to remove legal uncertainty and to promote electronic communications. Parliament adopted its legislative resolution on the proposal on 13 February 2019. The main points of Parliament's position include modifying the definition of the term 'court', to mean any authority in a Member State that ...

On 31 May 2018, the Commission proposed a proposal for a new regulation on taking of evidence in civil proceedings. It takes stock of the existing regulation (from 2001), but provides for a number of changes to remove legal uncertainty and to promote electronic communications. Parliament adopted its legislative resolution on the proposal on 13 February 2019. The main points of Parliament's position include modifying the definition of the term 'court', to mean any authority in a Member State that is competent under the laws of that Member State to take evidence according to this regulation (i.e. not only judicial bodies). Parliament also considers that any decentralised information technology (IT) system for cross-border communication of evidence must be based on e-CODEX, and that the use of videoconferencing or any other appropriate distance communication technology should be subject to the consent of the person to be heard. Any electronic systems used to take evidence must also ensure that professional secrecy and legal professional privilege (lawyers' secrets) are duly protected. The discussion in Council is ongoing, thus trilogue negotiations on the proposal have not yet been able to commence.

Limitation periods for traffic accidents

27-06-2017

The Committee on Legal Affairs wants Parliament to call on the Commission to put forward a proposal for a directive to lay down common rules on limitation periods for civil claims arising from cross-border traffic accidents. Its report stresses the differences between Member States' rules, and the legal difficulties faced by victims of cross-border accidents.

Prospects for a Multilateral Investment Court

14-06-2017

Since 2015, the European Commission has worked on the establishment of a Multilateral Investment Court (MIC). The purpose of this court is to have a permanent international body that can settle investment disputes between investors and states. The MIC would replace the current system of investor-to-state dispute settlement (ISDS) based on ad hoc commercial arbitration, which has become controversial over the past few years.

The European Law Institute/UNIDROIT Civil Procedure Projects as a Soft Law Tool to Resolve Conflicts of Law

13-01-2017

Upon request by the JURI Committee this paper describes the European Law Institute/UNIDROIT Project for a text establishing Principles of Transnational Civil Procedure and subsequent efforts to establish a European set of procedures that would transcend national jurisdictional rules and facilitate the resolution of disputes arising from transnational commercial transactions. It is a rolling programme of rules, with comments designed to produce soft-law.

The Mediation Directive

16-12-2016

Taking into account the limited objectives set within the Mediation Directive, namely to facilitate access to alternative dispute resolution and promote mediation that would operate in a balanced relationship with judicial proceedings, its implementation throughout the European Union has been rather successful and unproblematic. In some Member States, it has triggered the establishment of previously non-existent mechanisms and institutions; in others, it has ensured some alignment of procedural law ...

Taking into account the limited objectives set within the Mediation Directive, namely to facilitate access to alternative dispute resolution and promote mediation that would operate in a balanced relationship with judicial proceedings, its implementation throughout the European Union has been rather successful and unproblematic. In some Member States, it has triggered the establishment of previously non-existent mechanisms and institutions; in others, it has ensured some alignment of procedural law and various practices. The challenges lying ahead are linked to the limitations of comparing different national solutions without the benefit of coherent data on the use and impact of mediation, and to experience with the implementation of other European Union (EU) acts (such as the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Directive from 2013). The growing recognition of the usefulness of mediation as such will in any case be further strengthened by the continuous exchange of best practices in different national jurisdictions, supported by appropriate action at the European level.

Application of the European Order for Payment

25-11-2016

On 17 October 2016, Parliament's Legal Affairs Committee adopted a report on the application of the European Order for Payment procedure. The report is very critical of the Commission's belated implementation report and looks for the plenary to call upon the Commission to submit a fresh one.

The papers included in this compilation examine the application of the Mediation Directive in the Member States, as well as its relationship with both judicial proceedings and other forms of alternative and online dispute resolution. The papers propose possible avenues to improve the situation, in particular by promoting a better use of mediation and ADR and facilitating the intra-EU recognition of settlements.

Harmonized Rules and Minimum Standards in the European Law of Civil Procedure

15-06-2016

Since 1999, the European Union has gained considerable experience in harmonizing procedural law. The regulatory approaches range from the coordination of national procedures to the enactment of self standing procedures. However, the practical impact of the European instruments is still disappointing. In this respect, the European lawmaker should not only focus on rules, minimum standards and self standing procedures, but also regard the judicial systems of the EU member states. Implementing legislation ...

Since 1999, the European Union has gained considerable experience in harmonizing procedural law.

However, the practical impact of the European instruments is still disappointing. In this respect, the European lawmaker should not only focus on rules, minimum standards and self standing procedures, but also regard the judicial systems of the EU member states. Implementing legislation of Member States is an important tool to improve the practical impact of the EU instruments. In addition, legislative approaches should be based on clear concept and aim to pursue clear objectives. In this respect, the concept of “procedural minimum standards” still deserves further clarification.
