  • Privilégier les clauses de compétence: un atout procédural significatif dans l'espace européen | EUROJURIS Belgium
    affaire ayant les mêmes cause objet et parties La Cour de cassation l arrêt porte sur une assignation antérieure à l entrée en vigueur du nouveau règlement motive sa décision sur le fondement de l article 27 du règlement européen Bruxelles I alors applicable repris article 29 du nouveau règlement européen Bruxelles I bis En l espèce la société française Linde avait conclu un contrat avec la société américaine Praxair Inc en vue de concevoir et fournir une usine de production de gaz La société Praxair a alors chargé une société allemande Atlas Copco Energas et une autre société de droit belge du nom de Praxair NV de leur livrer des compresseurs et autres fournitures nécessaires à la mise en place du projet L installation s est révélée être défectueuse à la suite de quoi la société française a saisi le juge des référés Peu de temps après la société allemande a intenté une action en justice devant le tribunal d Anvers Belgique pour se dégager de sa responsabilité Trois mois plus tard la société française Linde assignait les sociétés américaine et allemande devant le tribunal à Toulouse La société allemande Atlas Copco Energas a alors invoqué l exception de litispendance Dans un premier temps la Cour de cassation affirme que l assignation française ne constitue pas la suite de la saisine du juge des référés En effet cette procédure d urgence n a pas l autorité de la chose jugée et ne pourra en conséquence être assimilée à une décision de fond La Cour d appel a donc commis une erreur procédurale cette saisine du juge des référés n ayant pas la même valeur qu une assignation au fond Il n y avait donc pas de litispendance La Cour dénonce à bon droit l existence d une première procédure française renvoyant les parties devant les juridictions belges compétentes compte tenu de l exception de litispendance La valeur des clauses attributives de juridiction est ainsi consacrée donnant force aux volontés des parties Les règlements européens privilégient en effet les clauses attributives de compétence expressément stipulées dans les contrats Dans le cadre de demandes formées entre les mêmes parties ayant le même objet et la même cause dans des Etats membres différents la juridiction assignée en second lieu ne pourra se déclarer compétente que si la première se dessaisit Les tribunaux français auraient donc été compétents uniquement si les juridictions d Anvers s étaient dessaisies ce qui en l espèce n était pas le cas Elle se prononce au visa de l article 27 du règlement n 44 2001 qui dispose que lorsque des demandes ayant le même objet et la même cause sont formées entre les mêmes parties devant des juridictions d Etats membres différents la juridiction saisie en second lieu sursoit d office à statuer jusqu à ce que la compétence du tribunal premier saisi soit établie et en son deuxième paragraphe que lorsque la compétence du tribunal premier est établie le tribunal saisi en second lieu se dessaisit

  • Clinical Trials of Medicinal Products in the Draft Law of Ukraine “On Medicinal Products” | EUROJURIS Belgium
    except for non interventional trials approved by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the approval of ethics committee established and operated under the healthcare facility where the clinical trial on medicinal products is planned to be undertaken are needed to start clinical trials studies of medicinal products Furthermore the mandatory character of the Good Clinical Practice and the Good Manufacturing Practice for conducting the clinical trials studies of medicinal products is remained The pre clinical tests of medicinal products shall be also conducted in compliance with requirements of Good Laboratory Practice It is proposed to oblige laboratories which conduct pre clinical tests to undergo mandatory certification of compliance with Good Laboratory Practice since April 1 2017 However unlike it is in the current legislation we offer to oblige the sponsor of the clinical trials studies or his her authorized representative to conclude a contract for liability insurance of the sponsor of clinical trials studies prior to the commencement of the clinical trials studies to cover damage occurred to life and health of subjects Respective changes we propose to make in the Article 7 of the Law of Ukraine On Insurance Please note that as of today a life and health insurance contract is needed to undertake clinical trials studies More details will be set out in the new section of the draft law named procedure for conducting clinical trials studies and examination of their materials Thus Ministry of Health of Ukraine should implement new provisions and develop the following procedures the procedure for import into the customs territory of Ukraine recording storage use destruction disposal or export from the customs territory of Ukraine of investigational medicinal products the order procedure for keeping the State register of clinical trials studies on medicinal products Separate Article is devoted to the protection of patients healthy volunteers who are involved in the clinical trials studies of medicinal products the possibility to give informed oral consent in the presence of at least one witness if the patient healthy volunteer or his her legal representative is unable to provide it in the written form is adopted directly from the Directive 2001 20 EC Thus a requirement of the presence of at least one impartial witness was replaced by the more stringent demand of the presence of at least two impartial witnesses which seems to be more suitable for our conditions Especial protection of clinical trials studies subjects is also set out with an intention to comply with European law For example the clinical trials studies of medicinal products involving minors or underage persons may be undertaken only if the concerned medicinal product is intended exclusively for the treatment of childhood diseases or if clinical trials studies are designed to optimize the dosage or mode of administration of the medicinal product for the minors or underage persons respectively The clinical trials studies of medicinal products involving minors or underage persons and designed to optimize the dosage or mode of administration of the medicinal product for such

  • ‘UBER’ Facing Legal Obstacles in Europe | EUROJURIS Belgium
    be professional drivers with the necessary administrative authorization The equivalent minimum standard for UberPop drivers is trivial Considering the obvious similarities to traditional taxi services Uber s business activities in the US led to considerable legal controversies culminating in a cease and desist order by Californian authorities including the threat of a 20 000 fine per contravention The company could conclude an agreement with the authorities but its entry to the European and especially the German market proved to be even more arduous Uber started its business in five German cities in 2013 Berlin Munich Hamburg Frankfurt and Duesseldorf Soon it discovered that both regulatory authorities and unions of local taxi enterprises saw the company in breach of national and regional legislation Notwithstanding the interventions of administrative units in Hamburg and Berlin unions of competing taxi companies successfully invoked unfair competition claims Courts in Berlin and Frankfurt consequently granted injunctions against Uber The courts repudiated Uber s allegation to merely provide intermediation for transport services and instead considered the company in actual competition with taxi services Since Uber drivers are usually neither licensed nor adequately insured Uber enjoyed an unfair advantage compared to traditional taxi services commented the court Both decisions temporarily disallow Uber to provide its services Each infringement may be fined up to 250 000 or 327 000 Uber decided to carry on its business despite of any possible sanctions The applicant in Berlin then abstained from enforcing the injunction and claiming fines for infringements being afraid of potential compensation claims Meanwhile in Frankfurt the court has set aside the injunction denying the special urgency of the case But the court explicitly held that it still considers Uber s business to be illegal A possible appeal and of course the main proceedings are still to come and show
