Alternative method of service of Statement of Claim (Rule 275(1) RoP)


As regards Poland service under section 1 or 2 could not be effected. Court authorizes three alternative methods, which appear to be good service and comply with the law of the country where service is to be effected (Rule 275(4) RoP), as they comply with the EU Service Regulation (EU 2020/1784). 

The date on which the Statement of Claim is deemed to have been served is the date of effective delivery of the letter to this defendant at his legal address.  


As regards service in the United Kingdom the criteria under Rule 275(1) RoP […] are not met at this stage of the procedure. Service under Rule 274(1)(ii) ROP (Hague Service Convention) is still in progress and the delay of 10 days from the date of sending the registered letter is still reasonable. Therefore, the request under Rule 275(1) regarding service on the UK entities will be dismissed.
