Brussels Convention

A convention on civil jurisdiction and the enforcement of judgments, signed at Brussels in 1968 by the members of the European Economic Community. The UK acceded to the Brussels Convention in 1978 and it became part of UK law under the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982. The Convention sets out a system for the allocation of jurisdiction and for the reciprocal enforcement of judgments between contracting states. The Brussels Convention has largely been superceded by EC Regulation No 44/2001 (the Brussels Regulation (www.practicallaw.com/2-205-5103)), except in relation to jurisdictional matters concerning dependant territories of Convention countries.
