New Developments in the Treatment of Trusts in Belgium
Belgium's Parliament adopted a law introducing a private international law code (code) in the Belgian legal system on July 16, 2004. The law was published in the official gazette on July 27.
Based on the scientific research of a group of professors of various Belgian law faculties, the code contains a comprehensive set of rules determining the international jurisdiction, the recognition, and the execution of foreign decisions and authentic instruments. It is the first complete and coherent codification of the Belgian Private International Law. The code will enter into force on October 1.
