European Judicial Network (in civil and commercial matters)

The Department of Private International Law (Nemzetközi Magánjogi Főosztály) at the Ministry of Justice (Igazságügyi Minisztérium) acts as the national contact point in Hungary. The related tasks are distributed among several staff members within the Department, in addition to their other activities.

The Ministry of Justice (Department of Private International Law) and the Ministry of the Interior as central authorities are members of the Network. The National Office for the Judiciary (Országos Bírósági Hivatal), as a further other judicial authority, the Hungarian Chamber of Civil Law Notaries (Magyar Országos Közjegyzői Kamara), the Hungarian Bar Association (Magyar Ügyvédi Kamara) and the Hungarian Association of Court Bailiffs (Magyar Bírósági Végrehajtói Kar) as professional organisations are also part of the Network. The representatives of the members regularly attend the meetings of the Network, depending of course on the agenda of the meetings.

Hungarian members of the Network do not have an official internal network in Hungary. Cooperation between the members takes place on a case-by-case basis as required.
