Under which enforcement regime(s) could a judgment of the courts of England and Wales be enforced in Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a territory of the UK. The position on enforcement (and also jurisdiction) requires consideration of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 (CJJA 1982). CJJA 1982, s 39 provides that the regime for recognition and enforcement of judgments between the UK and Gibraltar, may, by Order in Council, correspond to the provisions in the Brussels Convention 1968, with such modifications as are considered appropriate.

The relevant Order is the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 (Gibraltar) Order 1997 (the Order), SI 1997/2602, which came into force on 1 February
