Enforcing Mediation Pacts

CK - Washington.   By 2009, agreements concluded in mediation for the resultion of disputes will enjoy cross-border recognition and enforcement in the European Union, German attorney general Brigitte Zypries stated on November 9, 2007. A crucial effect is that uniform recognition rules will toll the statute of limitations under various member nations' laws.

Implementing legislation in member states will follow the EU-wide agreement. German law will need minor changes. The new rules complement simplified cross-border rules on the recognition and enforcement of judgments in small claims matters which are scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2009.
