European Judicial Network (in civil and commercial matters)

The Network of Local Correspondents for International Judicial Assistance (Rețeaua de corespondenți locali în domeniul asistenței judiciare internaționale) was set up in 2001 pursuant to an Order of the Minister for Justice, based on the model of the European Judicial Network. In March 2004, following two orders of the Minister for Justice, the Network was reorganised into two specialised networks: the Romanian Judicial Network in Criminal Matters (Rețeaua Judiciară Română în materie penală, corresponding to the European Judicial Network) and the Romanian Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters (Rețeaua Judiciară Română în materie civilă și comercială, corresponding to the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters). The two networks have been reorganised on a number of occasions (2005, 2007, 2010, 2014, 2016 and 2019), following amendments to the relevant EU law and changes in the staff working in the national judicial system.

The last update was made by Order No 1929/C of the Minister for Justice of 29 May 2014 in accordance with Decision No 568/2009/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2009 amending Council Decision 2001/470/EC of 28 May 2001. The Order was prepared in accordance with Government Order No 123/2007 on certain measures for strengthening judicial cooperation with the Member States of the European Union, approved with amendments by Law No 85/2008.

The Romanian Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters corresponds to the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters at national level.

Romania has designated two national contact points for the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters. The contact points for the European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters are within the Ministry of Justice. This ensures that the duties of the European Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters are fulfilled.

In accordance with Article 6 [of Council Decision 2001/470/EC], the Romanian Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters comprises one judge from Civil Section I and one judge from Civil Section II (formerly Commercial Matters) from the High Court of Cassation and Justice (Înalta Curte de Casație și Justiție); one judge from each Civil Section I and Civil Section II (formerly Commercial Matters) of the courts of appeal; one judge from each specialised court/section for minors and family matters who specialises in civil matters related to international child abduction and the award of indemnities for victims of crime; officials from the Directorate for International Law and Judicial Cooperation who also fulfil the duties of the Ministry of Justice as the Central Authority in the area of international judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters; and one designated representative from each of the professional associations of notaries (notari), bailiffs/judicial enforcement officers (executori judecătoreşti) and lawyers (avocaţi) in Romania. The national contact points for the European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters are full members of the Romanian Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters.

The judges who are members of the Romanian Judicial Network were designated by decision of the Superior Council of Magistracy (Consiliul Superior al Magistraturii).

Since 2001, the Directorate for International Law and Judicial Cooperation within the Ministry of Justice has organised a large number of seminars and work meetings for the members of the Networks using own resources (the budget of the Ministry of Justice). Since 2007, in particular, such events have been organised under more than 15 European programmes funded by the European Commission. Furthermore, representatives of the Romanian Judicial Network attend the meetings of the European Judicial Networks on a regular basis.

The members of the Romanian Judicial Network in Civil and Commercial Matters are listed in the Annex to Order No 4008/C of 09/10/2019. The Annex is an integral part of the Order.
