European Judicial Network (in civil and commercial matters)

In Luxembourg, the contact points and members of the European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters (the Network) are as follows:

Contact points

- A contact point designated at the Public Prosecutor's Office (Parquet Général) pursuant to Article 2(1)(a) carries out the ‘judicial cooperation’ tasks provided for under Article 3(1)(a), Article 5(2)(a) to (c) and Article 5(3) and (4) of Decision No 568/2009/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2009 amending Council Decision 2001/470/EC establishing a European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters.

The judge serving at the Public Prosecutor's Office handles requests for information and judicial cooperation made within the Network.

The contact point at the Public Prosecutor's Office also acts as a central authority, particularly in the context of Regulation (EC) No 4/2009 and the 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance.

- A contact point designated at the Ministry of Justice carries out the administrative tasks provided for under Article 3(1)(b), Article 5(2)(d) to (e), Article 5(3) and (4) and Articles 14, 15 and 18 of Decision No 568/2009/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2009 amending Council Decision 2001/470/EC establishing a European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters.

The contact point at the Ministry of Justice is responsible for administrative follow-up, coordination and communication with the European Commission, and more specifically with the Network's Secretariat, and with members of the Network at national level.
