Hall #7, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

The so called Judgments Project is currently one of the priorities of the Hague Conference on International Private Law. The purpose of the Judgments Project is to develop the international statute that would regulate recognition and enforcement of foreign court judgments on civil and commercial cases.  

The convention to be would apply to the cases when a judgment on a civil or a commercial case made by a public court in one contracting state should be recognized and enforced in another. Pursuant to the draft convention, the notion of 'judgment' includes all judgments made by court, whatever the court's name is, including determination of costs or expenses by the court.

In June 2019 the diplomatic conference will be convened  to adopt the final convention.
