Cross-Border Assignment Questionnaire

This Questionnaire seeks the views of business and the legal profession on the assignment of debts and other rights in cross-border cases. In particular, it is addressed to those involved in factoring or securitisation transactions or in transactions backed by security or collateral over debts and other contractual rights.

The information obtained with this questionnaire forms part of a study into the effects on third parties of assignments, with a focus on the law applicable to such carried out for the European Commission by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL). At present, the EU Member States have different approaches to these questions, and the Study will consider (among other questions) whether a harmonised rule is necessary and how it should look like.
