Eficacia ejecutiva internacional de los TÍTULOS EXTRAJUDICIALES
The full title of the article might be "Efficient International Enforcement of Non-judicial Decisions"
Here is an explanation from the UK Department of Constitutional Affairs webpage:
Council of Europe draft recommendations on enforcement
73. As part of its overarching aim of greater unity, the Council of Europe is looking at facilitating the efficient and cost-effective enforcement of civil judicial and non-judicial decisions (i.e. those which can be considered enforceable titles either by the law or by decision of the court). The Council of Europe is concerned that without an effective system of civil enforcement, other forms of 'private justice' may flourish. This can have adverse consequences on the public's confidence in and the credibility of the justice system.

An additional example of how non-judicial decisions may be enforced in England has just been brought to my attention, and I am copying it below. These are not merely non-judicial proceedings, but rather are instances in which an enforceable decision has already been handed down.
It is possible to enforce both judicial and non-judicial decisions. As well as judgments of the county courts and the High Court, other decisions that can be enforced using some or all of the above methods include some decisions made in the Magistrates’ Court (where some civil matters are dealt with under the summary proceedings process), various tribunals, and arrears of some types of rent and unpaid taxes, duties and decriminalised parking fines.
It is not always necessary to apply for a court order authorising the enforcement. Distraint proceedings can be undertaken for unpaid rent, taxes, customs and excise duties and parking fines without the need for prior judicial consent.
Both the county courts and the High Court are competent for ordering enforcement in cases where they have granted judgment. It should be noted, however, that a county court bailiff cannot enforce any amount over £5000 (unless enforcing an agreement regulated under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 which can only be enforced in county courts). County court judgments for more than £5000 must be transferred to the High Court for execution by an Enforcement Officer. Enforcement Officers in the High Court cannot enforce judgments for amounts less than £600.
