TUES 17/11/2009 - This Order declares the Convention on Jurisdiction, Applicable Law, Recognition, Enforcement and Co-operation in Respect of Parental Responsibility and Measures for the Protection of Children signed in The Hague on 19 October 1996 to be a Community Treaty within the meaning of section 1(2) of the European Communities Act 1972.

The Convention improves the international protection of children by providing uniform rules on jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement for decisions on parental responsibility and measures for the protection of children. It also establishes a system of administrative co-operation to facilitate the operation of the Convention across international borders.

The Convention contains matters within the competence of the European Community, although the Community is not able to become a party to the Convention itself. Those parts of the Convention which do not fall within Community competence are ancillary to the provisions of the Community treaties regarding judicial co-operation in civil matters, in particular those regarding the conflict of laws and jurisdiction, and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil matters.

The principal effect of declaring this Convention to be a Community Treaty is that the provisions of section 2 of the European Communities Act 1972 (which provide for the general implementation of Community Treaties) apply to it.
