Civil cooperation in civil matters serves the purpose of facilitating the mutual recognition of judgments in this field, with the ultimate goal of allowing a judgment handed down in one MS to circulate freely throughout the Union. It was included within the scope of the EC Treaty for the first time in 1999 with the entry into force of the ToA. Nevertheless, action by the MS of the Union acting together has a much longer history in that they concluded conventions in this field, in 1968 and 1980 respectively, which have served as models for instruments adopted after 1999. Furthermore, the then MS embarked upon an ambitious and, at the time, over-optimistic programme of harmonizing MS’ rules on conflict of laws as early as 1967; realization of this programme, which became feasible only after 1999, is still not complete.
