Staff case summary

Staff case summary


Procedure – Costs – Taxation – Purpose

(Art. 236 EC; Rules of Procedure of the Court of First Instance, Art. 92(1); Staff Regulations, Art. 91)

The legislature has introduced a special procedure for the taxation of costs where the parties disagree on the amount and nature of the recoverable costs following a judgment or order by which the Court of First Instance brought proceedings to an end and made an order as to the costs. Furthermore, that special procedure, laid down in Article 92(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the Court of First Instance, concerning the taxation of costs, excludes any claim for the same sums, or sums expended for the same purposes, in connection with proceedings alleging non‑contractual liability of the Community. Thus an applicant may not bring an application, on the basis of Article 236 EC and Article 91 of the Staff Regulations, which has, in reality, the same subject-matter as an application for taxation of costs.
