European Evidence Regulation

The European Evidence Regulation enables courts of law based in Member States to make requests for obtaining evidence from courts located in other Member States. The Regulation provides for the relationship with specific treaties relating to internationally obtaining evidence.



Judicial Atlas

The European Commission established the European Atlas for Civil Matters. If you are looking for a competent court or competent authority for the use of a specific instrument (delivery or notification of documents, European order for payment, etc.), you can consult the relevant section of the Atlas.

The search engine for courts in the Member States listed in this section includes the names and addresses of all courts competent in civil cases or commercial cases in the European Union Member States (courts of the first instance, courts of appeal, etc.), including the territorial scope of their jurisdiction.



Central Body: Council for the Judiciary

The implementation law of the European Evidence Regulation lists the Council as the central body for the Netherlands. The Council forwards requests it receives from the Member States to the competent court. The central body acts as an intermediary, its main duties being:

  • Providing information to the courts.
  • Finding solutions in case of any problems relating to requests.
