Key takeaways

If defendants are domiciled outside the territory of the contracting member states of the UPCA and have no statutory seat, central administration or principal place of business nor their own permanent or temporary place of business within the contracting member states of the UPCA, service must be effected in accordance with Rules 273 and 274 RoP.

An attempt of service and actual transmission in accordance with Rule 274.1 (a) (ii) and (iii) RoP and the provisions of the Hague Service Convention, respectively in accordance with the national rules regarding service through diplomatic or consular channels, is an indispensable prerequisite for a decision on the merits of the case if defendants based in China and Taiwan are involved.
