Agreement between the European Community and the Kingdom of Denmark on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters

According to Article 3(2) of the Agreement of 19 October 2005 between the European Community and the Kingdom of Denmark on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (1) (hereafter the Agreement), concluded by Council Decision 2006/325/EC (2), whenever amendments to Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 of 22 December 2000 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (3) are adopted, Denmark shall notify the Commission of its decision whether or not to implement the content of such amendments.

Regulation (EU) No 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 (4) was adopted on 12 December 2012.

In accordance with Article 3(2) of the Agreement, Denmark has by letter of 20 December 2012 notified the Commission of its decision to implement the contents of Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012. This means that the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012 will be applied to relations between the Union and Denmark.

In accordance with Article 3(6) of the Agreement, the Danish notification creates mutual obligations between Denmark and the Community. Thus, Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012 constitutes an amendment to the Agreement and is considered annexed thereto.

With reference to Article 3(3) and (4) of the Agreement, implementation of Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012 in Denmark can take place by amending existing legislation by the decision of Danish Parliament. In accordance with Article 3(5)(b) of the Agreement, Denmark shall notify the Commission of the date upon which such implementing legislative measures enter into force.
