Choice Of Court Agreements Act Singapore

(f) the exclusive choice of judicial agreement was made for the EU after the Hague Convention came into force. Second, the High Court considered whether the requirement of Order 111 r2 (a) of the court settlement, that an applicant must issue a “full and certified copy of the foreign judgment (including, if applicable, the reasons for the decision of the court rendering the judgment), was satisfied. Moreover, it should be noted that paragraph 24 of the Law is not applicable if the exclusive choice of judicial arrangement appointed by a court of a contracting state was made before the Hague Convention came into force in that State party. (a) an “exclusive jurisdictional agreement” is an agreement between two or more parties between two or more parties that a specific jurisdiction with exclusive jurisdiction refers to, to the exclusion of the jurisdiction of another jurisdiction; The Convention will address this problem by providing that, where the parties have expressly chosen a jurisdiction of one Member State to settle their disputes, the judgments of that court are recognised and enforced by the courts of other Member States. This is similar to the mechanism for recognizing and enforcement of arbitration awards under the 1958 United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitration Awards (also known as the New York Convention). However, the convention only supports the enforcement of a court decision if the judgment itself falls within the jurisdiction of the convention (i.e. where the decision is made by a court of a Member State designated by the parties` decision). The convention will not contribute to the enforcement of decisions that are not based on a court decision and are therefore not governed by the convention. At present, this situation is present with respect to the United Kingdom judgments. Section 3, paragraph 1, of the RECJA provides that a judgment of a UK higher court in Singapore may be registered under RECJA. After registration, such a judgment may be executed in the same manner as a singapore Supreme Court decision. However, if a judgment of the United Kingdom enters the scope of the law, recognition and enforcement must be made by law. The Hague Convention on the Election of Conventions of Justice (the “Convention”) establishes an international legal order that obliges States Parties (a) to maintain the exclusive choice of judicial agreements that designate the jurisdictions of contracting states in civil or international commercial matters; and b) recognize and enforce court judgments in other contracting states designated in the exclusive selection of judicial agreements, subject to exceptions to the Convention.
