What is a conciliation procedure?
Conciliation proceedings are a fast and inexpensive procedure for settling disputes out of court. This procedure is initiated at the request of one of the conflicting parties and can, in particular, unilaterally bring about a secure suspension of the statute of limitations.
EUCON provides the parties with qualified and experienced conciliators for this purpose. With the agreement of the other party, these mediators work through the conflict together with the parties within the framework of a mediation hearing and submit a mediation proposal
Further details of the procedure can be found in the EUCON Conciliation Rules.
Advantages of the conciliation procedure
- Suspension of the statute of limitations by submission of the conciliation application to EUCON as a recognized conciliation body (Section 204 (1) No. 4 BGB)
- Termination of the suspension of the statute of limitations only six months after conclusion of the conciliation proceedings
- Eucon has local jurisdiction in all civil law disputes relating to the German legal area
- As a rule, the costs of these conciliation proceedings are to be borne by the losing party in subsequent civil proceedings pursuant to Section 91 of the German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO)
- Chance of an enforceable result, since a conciliation settlement reached is to be regarded as an enforceable title within the meaning of § 794 para. 1 no. 1 ZPO (German Code of Civil Procedure)
