This chapter explores the recognition of judgements rendered within the course of insolvency proceedings constitutes one of the fundamental principles of the EIR. Recognition is based on mutual trust, which is also crucial regarding the maintenance of the universality of insolvency proceedings. Recognition also affects foreign judgments, while public policy exceptions are the grounds for refusing recognition. Additionally, the chapter tackles recognition as a cross-border legal problem.

On the other hand, the EIR uses the extension model which ensures the universality of insolvency proceedings.
