Draft of the Swiss Code of Civil Procedure
On 28 June 2006, the Federal Council (Swiss government) submitted to the Parliament its draft of the Swiss Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) with an explanatory report (“Message”). The CCP, which is presently not expected to enter into force before 2010, will for the first time provide Switzerland with a uniform regulation of civil procedure at national level. The CCP will supersede the current 26 cantonal Codes of Civil Procedure. The CCP thus represents the most important reform ever in this area of law in Switzerland.
