Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters

Brussels I Regulation 44/2001 ("Brussels I") of 22 December 2000. lays down rules governing international jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. It was replaced by the Brussels Ia Regulation 1215/2012 (recast). Its provisions apply from 10 January 2015. The jurisdiction provisions in Brussels I still apply to all court proceedings which were instituted before 10 January 2015. According to the transitional provision in Art. 66(2) Brussels Ia Regulation, the provisions concerning the exequatur procedure in Brussels I apply to all legal proceedings instituted, to authentic instruments formally drawn up or registered and to court settlements approved or concluded before 10 January 2015 which fall within the scope of that Regulation. It is the law of the Member State of origin which determines the duration and enforceability of a judgment and therefore the timeframe in which titles shall be recognised and enforced in the other Member States in accordance with Brussels I.
