Position paper regarding the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of decisions and authentic instruments in matters of succession and the creation of a European Certificate of Succession

Brussels,

This position has been drawn up based on the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of decisions and authentic instruments in matters of succession and the creation of a European Certificate of Succession of 14 October 2009. Nevertheless, the discussions underway at the Council have been taken into account, in particular the proposals by the Spanish and Belgian presidencies of the EU on this subject. As a general rule, the notariat approves of the significant steps taken by the European Commission on this subject. However, certain improvements could be made to the text.
