EU says no to the UK joining the Lugano convention

The EU Commission has published a communication in which it has concluded that the EU should not consent to the UK joining the Lugano convention. The Lugano convention relates to international jurisdiction and to the recognition and enforcement of judgments.

The Commission reasons that the UK's departure from the EU and its desire to have a more distant relationship with the EU mean that consent should not be given.

In view of the above, the Commission takes the view that the European Union should not give its consent to the accession of the United Kingdom to the 2007 Lugano Convention.
