Developments in PIL EU Legislation

The Recast Service Regulation Published

On 2 December 2020, following a lengthy procedure, the Recast Service Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2020/1784 of 25 November 2020 on the service in the Member States of judicial and extrajudicial documents in civil or commercial matters) was finally published in the Official Journal of the European Union (the Position of the Council at first reading in view of the adoption of the Recast had appeared a few days earlier: see it here).

The contents of the Regulation were known, in substance, since an agreement was reached, in June 2020, between the Council and the European Parliament as a result of the trilogue consultations.

Previous posts in this blog illustrated the envisaged innovations and the challenges posed by the recast, and discussed some of the issues raised by the current rules.

The Recast will apply from 1 July 2022.
