Article 10 - Information on competent courts or authorities
The following information is provided in accordance with Article 6(3) of Directive 2008/52/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 May 2008 on certain aspects of mediation in civil and commercial matters.
To obtain an enforceable title of a written agreement reached during a mediation procedure, the parties to that procedure can go to a notary (Notar), where they can either conclude the agreement directly before the notary or make an existing written agreement into an authentic instrument by having the notary formally endorse it in accordance with § 54 of the Notary Public Code of Responsibility (Notariatsordnung). The parties may also conclude a settlement before any district court (Bezirksgericht) on the content of a written agreement reached during a mediation process regarding a civil case.
