The Regulation (EC) No 861/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 July 2007 establishing a European small claims procedure applies in cross-border litigation to civil and commercial matters where the claim does not exceed 2000 euros. This procedure intends to improve access to justice by simplifying cross-border small claims litigation and reducing costs.
All procedural issues not specifically dealt with in the Regulation shall be governed by national law. This documentation intends to make an inventory of national procedural rules applicable to get a better understanding of how this procedure is implemented before the national courts of the different Member States
Regulation (EC) No 1896/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 creating a European order for payment procedure allows creditors to recover their uncontested claims in civil and commercial matters using a uniform procedure based on the use of standard forms.

At European level, two ways exist to seek enforcement abroad of a judgment. A credit or seeking enforcement abroad of a judgment can choose either to obtain a declaration of enforceability in the Member State whereenforcementissought, or to obtain a EuropeanEnforcementOrder in the Member State where the judgmentisissued, in accordance withRegulation (EC) No 805/2004. This Memo provides information about bothprocedures.
For the European judicial area to function smoothly, a necessary precondition is that a citizen or an enterprise should be able to have an enforcement order issued by a national authority in civil and commercial matters executed in another European Union country. The objective of the EJE (European Judicial Enforcement) project, co-financed by the European Union, is to improve the execution of court judgments in Europe by offering European citizens and judicial officers – the enforcement agents – the information they require for the execution of legal decisions in the territory of another Member State. A further aim of this project is to improve the mechanisms for cooperation and communication among judicial officers in Europe.
The partners in the EJE project welcome the initiative of the European Commission which aims to establish a European bank account preservation order. They are also delighted at the recognition of the role of enforcement agents in the implementation of the European account preservation order. However, the partners of the EJE project consider that some articles must be clarified.
On the initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, the European Day of Civil Justice is celebrated every year on 25 October. Judicial institutions of the Member States are invited to actively participate in the celebration of this day, by organising events for a wide public and judicial professionals.
