The Arrondissement Court (Dutch: Arrondissementsrechtbank, French: Tribunal d'arrondissement, German: Bezirksgericht) in Belgium is a court which deals with disputes of competence between the Court of First Instance, the Commercial Court and the Labour Court of a judicial arrondissement. It consists of the Presidents of the Court of First Instance, the Commercial Court and the Labour Court.[1][2]

In principle, the decisions of the Arrondissement Court are not subject to appeal. Only the Prosecutor-General at the Court of Appeal can appeal against its decisions before the Court of Cassation.
