AUTHENTIC ACTS

In December, the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the Commission to issue a proposal on the recognition of authentic acts as defined in the ECJ case law. The legal profession was lobbying for something wider in scope, offering the same status to documents of equivalent legal effect under their national laws. The Commission will issue a Green Paper before the end of 2009, and has indicted that that consultation would cover “authentic acts and possibly other instruments”.
