Service of Documents
This chapter analyses the legislative history, main substantive content, and normative implications of Regulation of 29 May 2000 on the service in the Member Sates of judicial and extrajudicial documents. The ‘Service Regulation’ regulates the cross border service of documents in civil and commercial matters and introduces decentralized service methods such as service between local transmitting and receiving authorities, direct service, and postal service. Further, many of the features intended to simplify the procedure including standard forms, deadlines and less stringent translation rules are examined. The cases C-443/03 Götz Leffler v, Berlin Chimie AG and C-473/04 Plumex v. Young Sports N.V. concerning the Regulation are analysed. In addition, a Study on the Application of the Regulation commissioned by the Commission, the subsequent Report of the Commission, and the proposals for the amendment of the Regulation are presented.
