NewsA mutual recognition of judgments between EU and Ukraine

13 September, 20230

A mutual recognition of judgments between EU and Ukraine started from the 1st of September 23 under Hague Convention

The Convention of 2 July 2019 on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters.

The Contracting Parties to the present Convention are, desiring to promote effective access to justice for all and to facilitate rule-based multilateral trade and investment, and mobility, through judicial co-operation,

Believing that such co-operation can be enhanced through the creation of a uniform set of core rules on recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in civil or commercial matters, to facilitate the effective recognition and enforcement of such judgments,

Convinced that such enhanced judicial co-operation requires, in particular, an international legal regime that provides greater predictability and certainty in relation to the global circulation of foreign judgments, and that is complementary to the Convention of 30 June 2005 on Choice of Court Agreements. The Hague Judgments Convention is entered into force, ensuring international recognition and enforcement of judgments from other countries’ courts in civil and commercial matters. Ukraine and the Member States of the European Union, except for Denmark have joined the Convention, which means that Member States will recognize Ukraine’s judgements, and Ukraine will recognize judgements from Member States. Other countries are also expected to join in the future.
