Sources

Article 11 of the Regulation.

Presentation

The service of judicial documents coming from another Member State may not give rise to any payment or reimbursement of taxes or costs for services rendered by the Member State.

However, the applicant has to pay or reimburse the costs linked to:
a) the intervention of a judicial officer or a person competent under the law of the requested Member State;
b) the use of a particular type of service.

Costs occasioned by recourse to a judicial officer or to a person competent under the law of the Member State addressed shall correspond to a single fixed fee laid down by that Member State in advance which respects the principles of proportionality and non-discrimination. Member States shall communicate such fixed fees to the Commission.

Countries with fixed fees

Member States have indicated what the countries in which fixed fees are charged are and the amount of the fees. The information is availaible in the communications of the Member States. These countries are:

GermanyUnder normal circumstances, the cost is € 20.50. It is based on the type of request for service, in accordance with the laws related to the court fees.

Estonia    Usually, service of documents is free. Service by a judicial officer (ie where the service is ordered) is an exception to this rule. The fee is 350 EEK (around 23 €) when the act is served, and 200 EEK (around € 13) if the service is not possible. In all cases, the applicant receives the "bill" (that is to say, the payment information, the time, etc..) with the acts that are send back to him.
