The following Dispute Resolution guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Brexit: The UK's departure from the EU on exit day, ie Friday 31 January 2020, has implications for practitioners considering cross border EU processes. For guidance, see: Cross border considerations—checklist—EU cross border processes—Brexit specific.
This Practice Note considers the European order for payment regulation, Regulation (EC) 1896/2006 as updated by Regulation (EU) 2015/2421. It explains EOP or European payment orders (EPO) as they are sometimes referred to. They are used in cross-border cases to obtain payment of an uncontested specific money claim without court proceedings. When dealing with the procedure in England and Wales, the procedural provisions are set out in CPR 78 and CPR PD 78 (updates in force from 1 October 2017). Article 2 sets out excluded claims. A defendant to such claims has options to make a ‘statement in opposition’ seek review of the order in exceptional circumstances if out of time to make such a statement or can apply for the enforcing court to refuse enforcement. This Practice Note also makes reference to the 17 October 2016 Report on review of the regulation.
Regulation (EC) 1896/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 creating a European order for payment procedure (Regulation (EC) 1896/2006, EOP regulation)
