2019 14th Issue: Introduction and Analysis of the EU Blocking Act - 2019-08-20
[Abstract]The EU Blocking Statute is a bill that prohibits third-country legislation from being applied within the EU. In response to US sanctions imposed on Cuba, Iran and Libya, the European Commission first proposed the Blocking Statute in 1996 to hedge the impact of the US extraterritorial jurisdiction on EU companies. With the current strengthening of US protectionism and the US sanctions against Iraq, the European Commission has made new changes to the Blocking Statute in 2018. By blocking the validity of foreign laws and regulations with extraterritorial jurisdiction in the EU, the Blocking Statute allows EU companies or nationals to recover losses from parties that have caused damage to the company due to sanctions, allowing the European Commission to authorize EU enterprises to comply with relevant foreign extraterritorial legislation to protect the rights and interests of EU companies. At present, Chinese enterprises are increasingly affected by the long-armed jurisdiction of the United States. We can learn from the EU experience to introduce similar laws to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises, and maintain a normal international order.
