1. Procedures for rectification and withdrawal (Art. 10(2))

The existing rules of court in both the Sheriff Court and Court of Session in Scotland give effect to the Regulation with any necessary adaptations.

The rules provide that an application for rectification or withdrawal of a European Enforcement Order Certificate is to be in the form set out in Annex VI to the Reulation. The form is to be lodged with the Sheriff Clerk for Sheriff Court applications. Court of Session applications are treated as though they are petitions and should be lodged with the Assistant Clerk of Session in the Court of Session.

The forms and Rules can also be accessed on the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service website at the link below:

2. Procedures for review (Art.19 (1))

Article 19(1) requires that the debtor must be entitled to apply for a review of the judgment in circumstances where the document instituting the proceedings did not reach him or he was prevented from objecting to the claim through no fault of his own.

The existing rules of court in both the Sheriff Court and Court of Session in Scotland will be used to give effect to the Regulation with any necessary adaptations.

The relevant Sheriff Court Rules and Court of Session Rules are summarised below. The full text of the rules and the relevant forms can be found at: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/.

No specific form is prescribed for such an application but it will normally be in the style of an Initial Writ (Form G1). If granted, the action proceeds as if the defender had lodged a notice of intention to defend.
      Rule 31.3 provides that an appeal to the Court of Session be made via note of appeal by writing on the principal interlocutor sheets or on a separate sheet and shall be lodged with the sheriff clerk. Rule 31.4 provides that an appeal to the Sheriff Principal be made by lodging a note of appeal in Form A1. Rules 31.1 and 31.2 specify the required time limits.
      The rules in full can be found in the Sheriff Courts section of the SCTS website at: Ordinary Cause Rules.
