E200803Y6 | Aug. 2020(E249) Back    
  As reported in the Judicial Yuan’s press release, the Judicial Yuan is authorized to decide and prescribe the enforcement date of the Commercial Case Adjudication Act and the Intellectual Property and Commercial Court Organization Act promulgated on January 15, 2020 according to Article 81 of the Commercial Case Adjudication Act and Article 45 of the Intellectual Property and Commercial Court Organization Act, respectively.  The newly enacted legislation of the two acts involves such aspects as specialty court establishment, mandatory representation by attorneys, use of e-facility, mandatory preliminary mediation for commercial disputes, litigant’s inquiry system, expert witness, and confidentiality preservation order, etc., which are so different from the established civil procedures that the new legislation will take considerable time to accomplish the integration and coordination of relevant resources and systems.  However, for answering the public’s eagerness for early implementation of the new legislation, the Commercial Case Adjudication Act and the Intellectual Property and Commercial Court Organization Act will be enforced as of July 1, 2021.  (Released 2020.08.03)
