The EU Succession Regulation No. 650/2012 — also known as Brussels IV — has been widely adopted across the European Union and will come into force in August this year. In the latest STEP webcast, Richard Frimston TEP and Michael Parkinson TEP explain the history and current status of Brussels IV, and detail the scope of Brussels IV across EU states. Richard and Michael look in detail at how Brussels IV applies in the UK, Ireland and Denmark as non-applicable jurisdictions, how renvoi functions under Article 34 and how existing treaties relating wills should apply once Brussels IV comes into force.
