Although published in 2013 this chapter was written based on a paper given in November 2009 and reflects the state of the law then. It describes suggested changes to the Brussels I Regulation to enable the EU to adopt the Hague Choice of Court Agreements Convention. Some of those changes have since been made by the Brussels I Recast of 2012 that comes into force in January 2015. The EU agreed a Decision in December 2014 to adopt the Hague Choice of Court Agreements Convention in 2015.
