Brussels Regulation
Council Regulation 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. This Regulation supersedes the 1968 Brussels Convention. Both the Brussels Regulation and the Brussels Convention provide that defendants should be sued in their country of domicile, regardless of nationality. The Brussels Regulation came into force on 1 March 2002. It applies to all members of the European Union including Denmark. (Note that although the Brussels Regulation is not directly applicable to Denmark, it has effectively been extended to Denmark by a separate agreement between the EU and Denmark which took effect on 1 July 2007.)

Council Regulation 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. This Regulation largely supersedes the 1968 Brussels Convention (except in relation to jurisdictional matters concerning dependant territories of Brussels Convention countries). Both the Brussels Regulation and the Brussels Convention set out a system for the allocation of jurisdiction and for the reciprocal enforcement of judgments. The Brussels Regulation came into force on 1 March 2002. It applies to all members of the European Union including Denmark. (Note that although the Brussels Regulation is not directly applicable to Denmark, it has effectively been extended to Denmark by a separate agreement between the EU and Denmark which took effect on 1 July 2007.)
