Amendment of the Code of Civil Procedure

According to the amendment of the Code of Civil Procedure from the 1st of July 2016 for companies with an inland seat have to submit all submissions to the court electronically, and if the company is a defendant in a procedure, the court will also electronically deliver all documents, except the application which is delivered in paper format.

In order to be able to comply with the new rules, a sufficient technical infrastructure has to be granted either by the company or by its legal representative, including the so called “ÁNYK” program, the “process gate” and the electronic signature. Further to this, the parties have to preserve all electronic documents. In case the digitalization of a large amount of the evidences would entail disproportionate difficulties, it will be possible to present the evidences in paper format.
