On 11 December 2018 the Dutch Senate voted to create the Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC District Court and NCC Court of Appeal) as part of the Amsterdam courts.
The NCC legislative process is now close to completion.
The final step is for the Minister of Justice and Security to issue a decree for the NCC legislation to enter into force. A decision is expected soon.
In addition, the eNCC upload/download system has completed testing and is ready to go. However, technical and administrative discussions are ongoing on how and when to fully implement it.
The KEI legislation has been delayed and will therefore not apply to proceedings before the NCC until further notice. So the Civil Procedure Code rules will be as they are now, for the time being.
