In the Official Journal of the European Union, series L 105 of 23 April 2015 were published the Rules of Procedure of the General Court.
The Rules of Procedure of 2 May 1991 have been amended numerous times in order to gradually equip the General Court with provisions enabling it to deal under the best possible conditions with different kinds of cases falling within increasingly varied areas. A full revision of the text was necessary in order to give this set of rules a new coherence, to promote consistency in the procedural provisions governing proceedings brought before the Courts of the European Union, to preserve the capacity of the General Court to rule on cases within a reasonable term, to clarify parties’ rights, to specify the General Court’s expectations regarding the parties’ representatives and to adjust a certain number of provisions to take account of certain changes, including technological changes, in relation to the lodging and service of procedural documents, and of difficulties encountered in their implementation. The provisions of this Regulation implement and supplement, if necessary, the relevant provisions of the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community and the Statute. The Rules implement and supplement, so far as necessary, the relevant provisions of the Treaty on EU, Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, and the Statute.
These Rules replace Rules of Procedure of 2 May 1991, as last amended on 19 June 2013.
