|Green Paper on improving the efficiency of the enforcement of judgements in the European Union: The Attachment of Bank Accounts|
|Period of consultation|
|From 24 October 2006 to 31 March 2007|
|Objective of the consultation|
On 24 October 2006 the Commission adopted a Green Paper improving the efficiency of the enforcement of judgements in the European Union: The Attachment of Bank Accounts (COM (2006) 618) (SEC (2006) 1341 (PDF File 251 KB)).
The problems of cross-border debt recovery risk constituting an obstacle to the free circulation of payment orders within the European Union and an impediment for the proper functioning of the Internal Market. Late payment and non-payment jeopardises the interests of businesses and consumers alike. The differences in the efficiency of debt-recovery within the European Union also risk distorting competition. Community action on this subject therefore needs to be considered.
The Commission intends to organise a public hearing on the subject matter of the Green Paper. All those responding will be invited to attend.
The Commission calls on all interested persons to send in their replies and any other useful contributions by no later than 31 March 2007 to the following e-mail address:
