As of 1.07.2022, the new rules on service between Member States will enter into force, while EC Regulation No.1393/2007 will be repealed. The aim is to ensure greater efficiency and speed in service by using a special secure and reliable decentralised computer system between the authorities of the sending and receiving states, using a qualified electronic seal or signature where appropriate. The addressee may then refuse service within two weeks if he or she does not understand the language or if no translation into the language of the State of service is available. Service by diplomatic, consular or registered mail remains possible. It seems that a tentative opening for service by electronic means (Art. 19), provided that there is an explicit consent of the addressee or an explicit confirmation, is to be ensured. However, specific additional conditions will have to be created by the individual member states.
