The period of Russia’s membership in the Council of Europe was generally marked as negative practice of the European Court of Human Rights concerning legal certainty at the stage of verification of judicial acts. However, after ten years from the time Russia joined the Council of Europe, there was a positive assessment of the principle of compliance with legal certainty within the framework of supervisory proceedings in arbitration procedure. The article gives examples of court practice and achievements of doctrinal studies in this sphere, the research explores the problem of competition of the European legal principles of fair trial and legal certainty at the stage of verification of judicial acts in civil, administrative and economic cases. The legal force of a court decision cannot be a guarantee of its preservation in the presence of vices of fact and law, and legal certainty supports the authority of the judiciary. In the conditions of competition of these principles of justice, the author comes to the conclusion that it is necessary to prioritize the principle of fair trial in the framework of verifying judicial activity in civil procedure, aimed at achieving not only the rule of law and validity, but also the rule of law. 

Keywords: verifying judicial activity; legal certainty; fair trial; rule of law; legal force of the judicial act.
