The history of the Conference
One of the necessary conditions of improvement and development of any activity is studying and taking into consideration the positive experience. The field of compulsory enforcement of judicial acts and acts of other authorities isn’t the exception, either.
Currently, each state has its own system of compulsory enforcement of judicial acts, with the peculiarities of the state system, economic development. And each of these systems has pros and cons in comparison with the foreign state system. Thereupon, it seems advisable to carry out the thorough investigation of the foreign experience as well it’s implementation in terms of performing compulsory enforcement of judicial acts and acts of other entitled bodies.
In the autumn of 2009 the Federal Bailiffs Service became a member of the International Union of Judicial Officers (hyperlink on UIHJ official site). Due to that the Service has increased the already existing contacts with foreign colleagues. The International Union of Judicial Officers has become a “firing pad” for investigating international experience in the field of compulsory enforcement of judicial acts. Furthermore, consultations held in the framework of the activities of the association are in the witness of the joint interest of the participants to the positive experience’ exchange and dissemination.
