On 6 August 2019, the Supreme Court (“SC”) issued Regulation No. 4 of 2019 (“SC Reg 4/2019”), amending the previous regulation, SC Regulation No. 2 of 2015 on the Procedure for the Resolution of Small Claims Lawsuit (“Previous Regulation”). SC Reg 4/2019 came into force on 20 August 2019. In general, SC Reg 4/2019 provides more optimal and effective regulation than the Previous Regulation. Under SC Reg 4/2019, there is an increase in the maximum threshold for material claims and an introduction to an e-court system for the small claims lawsuit, with the same settlement period which is within 25 (twenty five) days since the first hearing under the Previous Regulation.
