The new Lugano Convention was signed in 2007 (2007 Lugano Convention). Following a decision of the Swiss Federal Council on 31 March 2010, the 2007 Lugano Convention will be ratified by Switzerland with effect from 1 January 2011. The effect of this is that issues of jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments as between EU member states and Switzerland will continue to be governed by the 1988 Lugano Convention until that date, but from that date they will be governed by the 2007 Lugano Convention.
