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 sphere 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. In this regard, it seems advisable to research and implementation of the foreign experience for the actualization of the compulsory enforcement of judicial acts and acts of other authorities.

The International Union of Judicial Officers has become a “firing pad” for research international experience in the field of compulsory enforcement of judicial acts. Furthermore, consultations held in the framework of the activities of the association testified of the common interest of the participants to exchange and dissemination the positive experience.
For this reason, the leadership of the Federal Bailiffs Service of the Russian Federation decided to organize and conduct an International Conference on the territory of Russia where the representatives of enforcement services of the different states could share their experience and discuss the general issues.
