Abstract: First paragraph: The principle of mutual recognition of judicial decisions and the creation of a genuine judicial area throughout the European Community was endorsed in Tampere in October 1999. Thus, one of the primary objectives of the Brussels I Regulation is to improve the recognition and enforcement of cross-border judgments in civil and commercial matters throughout the Community. This thereby enhances the proper functioning of the internal market by encouraging free movement of judgments which would otherwise be subject to lengthy court proceedings in order to be recognised and enforced in another Member State.
