The Civil Procedure Code of the Russian Federation: Ten Years on the Move (analysis of changes and additions at the period from 2003 to 2013)

The author analyzes how varied the Civil Procedure Code of the Russian Federation in 2002 for the first ten years of its existence. During this period, it was adopted more than forty federal laws that made changes or additions to the Code. All changes can be devided into the several groups. The first group – is the so-called «technical» amendments to the procedural law which are of a technical nature, since, as a rule, are the result of material changes in legislation. This category may include the following amendments: for example, the exclusion of arts. 89, 120 and 122 of the RF CPC references to the tax authorities of the police because of the abolition of these state bodies. The second group of amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation – is a federal law aimed at eliminating errors that have been legalized in the original version of Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation, for example, art. 14 of the Code of Civil Procedure added the third part of the norm, according to which the court for a particular case is formed by taking into account the load and specialization of judges in order to exclude the impact of individuals interested in the outcome of the trial, including the use of automated information systems. In a separate third group of amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation is joined the so-called «ballot amendments» – four federal laws that adjusts the electoral law and the ch. 26 of the Russian Code of Civil Procedure. In conclusion, the author notes the desire that procedural law has evolved towards a more effective mechanism to protect the rights of the persons concerned, and not to create a more extensive, clumsy, but «stable» judicial system.
