2001 Brussels Regulation
Council Regulation 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters, which came into force on 1 March 2002 and sets out a system for the allocation of jurisdiction and the reciprocal enforcement of judgments between European Union ( www.practicallaw.com/6-107-6562) member states ( www.practicallaw.com/1-107-6833) and Denmark. (Although the 2001 Brussels Regulation is not directly applicable to Denmark, it was extended to Denmark by a separate agreement between the EU and Denmark which took effect on 1 July 2007.)
The 2001 Brussels Regulation has largely been superseded by Regulation (EU) 1215/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2012 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (recast) (Recast Brussels Regulation ( www.practicallaw.com/9-588-2365) ) which applies to:
Legal proceedings instituted on or after 10 January 2015.
Judgments given in proceedings instituted on or after 10 January 2015.
