Trans-Tasman law reform confirmed at SCAG

Trans-Tasman law reform confirmed at SCAG

Trans-Tasman legal disputes will be easier to resolve, cheaper and more efficient, after state and territories today agreed to implement a streamlined approach to cross-country litigation.

Trans-Tasman legal disputes will be easier to resolve, cheaper and more efficient, after state and territories today agreed to implement a streamlined approach to cross-country litigation. 


Federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland and New Zealand Justice Minister, Simon Power, today welcomed state and territory ministers’ support for the implementation of the Trans-Tasman Court Proceedings and Regulatory Enforcement Treaty.

 

The Treaty is aimed at simplifying the process for trans-Tasman litigation by streamlining the service of civil court proceedings and the process of enforcing judgments across the Tasman. It will allow certain fines imposed in one country to be enforced in the other.

 

At today’s meeting of the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General in Canberra, McClelland and Power informed State and Territory Ministers that both countries intend to introduce legislation to implement the Treaty by the end of 2009.

 

“In the current economic climate, measures that simplify and improve the processes for resolving legal disputes have become even more critical,” Power said.

 

“This project has the full support of all Australian States and Territories and we are committed to ensuring that the benefits of these reforms flow to the economies of both countries as soon as possible,” McClelland said.
