Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

The effect of this Order is to make provision corresponding to the relevant provisions of the 1968 Convention on Jurisdiction and the Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (the Brussels Convention) for the purpose of regulating, as between the United Kingdom and Gibraltar, the jurisdiction of courts and the recognition and enforcement of judgments. For this purpose the Order provides, in effect, that Gibraltar shall be treated as if it were a separate Contracting State. The Order also provides that, where relevant, certain authorities on the interpretation of the Brussels Convention are to be taken into account when interpreting the provision made by the Order. The Order also provides that a judgment given in Gibraltar will not be recognised in the United Kingdom if, had it been given in another Contracting State, recognition would be refused by virtue of an agreement to which Article 59 of the Brussels Convention applies.
