These Regulations come into force on 1 July 2007.
The European Community and the Kingdom of Denmark have entered into an agreement applying to Denmark the provisions of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. The agreement was signed on behalf of the European Community on 19 October 2005. The agreement has been approved on behalf of the European Community by a Council Decision of 27 April 2006 and enters into force on 1 July 2007.
These Regulations amend the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982, the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Order 2001 and the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments (Authentic Instruments and Court Settlements) Order 2001, and make other consequential amendments, to give effect to the agreement.
As regards Denmark, Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 is to have effect in accordance with the terms of the agreement. The Brussels Convention continues to have force of law, in relation to those territories to which the Convention applies but that are excluded from the Regulation. That means, at the date of these Regulations coming into force, Aruba and the French overseas territories.
