Le centre des intérêts principaux du débiteur insolvable en droit comparé

Abstract : The concept of Centre Of Main Interests (COMI) remains essential in the limited universality of bankruptcy mechanism implemented by Regulation (EC) N° 1346/2000 on insolvency. In this instrument, only insolvency proceedings opened at the COMI are intended to have universal effects. However COMI is also the criterion used by the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency. The interdependence of the two instruments backed up a comprehensive analysis of the international jurisprudence in a comparative law perspective. Through the determination of its exact location and the conditions governing its migration, COMI is now becoming a new standard in international business law whose flexibility is essential to pursue the final substantive goal set by the authors of the two instruments: the search for efficiency. At the same time, this notion expresses a more general trend in international law in favor of an increased role for voluntary solutions and less abstract factors.
