Commission Decision of 22 December 2008 on the request from the United Kingdom to accept Regulation 593/2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I).

In 2010 the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) was awarded a contract for the study on the question of effectiveness of an assignment or subrogation of a claim against third parties and the priority of the assigned or subrogated claim over the rights of other persons. The objective of the study is to identify whether there is a need to harmonise choice-of-law rules governing the effectiveness of an assignment or subrogation of a claim against third parties, in particular, the priority of the assigned or subrogated claim over the rights of other persons and to amend Rome I. The Final Report is now available.
