Tracker—Hague Judgments Convention

The following Dispute Resolution practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • Tracker—Hague Judgments Convention

This Tracker followed the work of the Hague Convention on Private International Law as it sought to reach an agreement for a convention to deal with the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (the Hague Judgments Convention). The 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters has now been signed and adopted and is open for signature.

The two main objectives of the convention identified by the Special Commission were:

  1. to enhance practical access to justice, through the recognition and enforcement of judgments (which is relevant to the UN Sustainable Development Goals), and

  2. to facilitate trade and investment, and contribute to economic growth, by enhancing legal certainty and reducing costs and uncertainties associated with cross-border dealings, and with the resolution of cross-border disputes

The table below shows the progress of the HCCH towards the adoption of the 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters. It provides links to in-depth news reports on issues identified and/or to relevant reports/documents.
