"The Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Amendment Act 1992: A Half Step Towards CER"

This article presents a critical appraisal of the Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Amendment Act 1992 within the context of the CER (Closer Economic Relations) initiative between New Zealand and Australia. The author welcomes the extension of recognition (through registration) to foreign non-money judgments, final or interlocutory, but criticises continued adherence to the requirement of reciprocity. The article also addresses other crucial issues, such as the failure to provide for ex parte relief in New Zealand in support of Australian proceedings, interpretation of the "natural justice" defence and differences between New Zealand and Australian extra-territorial jurisdictional bases.
