Following a broad consultation, the European Commission presented, on 13 December 2012, its proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Council Regulation (EC) n°1346/2000 on insolvency proceedings. Ten years after the Regulation's entry into force, the Commission has deemed it necessary to amend it in order to solve difficulties related to its practical implementation. Hence, the proposal extends the scope of the Regulation by including, among the insolvency proceedings, hybrid and pre-insolvency proceedings as well as debt-discharge proceedings. The proposal also clarifies the rules on jurisdiction and improves the procedural framework for determining jurisdiction. As far as publicity is concerned, the proposal requires Member States to publish the relevant court decisions in cross-border insolvency cases in a publicly accessible electronic register and provides for the interconnection of national insolvency registers.
