This article presents the results of a study on the problem of determining procedural security within the organization of civil proceedings. It is noted that presently, the theme of procedural security in criminal procedural relations has been revealed to a certain extent. However, researchers of other branches of Russian procedural law avoid this problem. In addition, the attention is focused on ensuring the safety of participants in the proceedings; therefore, other protection objects are overlooked.

Based on this, the subject of researching is the procedural security as an independent direction of ensuring legal security, carried out in the sphere of civil proceedings and understood as a state of protection of the objects of protection established by law, interesting for citizens, society and the state.

The purpose of this article is to conduct researching that includes a review of the current state of the problems and studying of the issue of the legal and procedural security implemented at the stages of the civil process.

The methodology of research was carried out by methods of analysis and synthesis, deductive method, system approach, formal legal and comparative legal methods. First they allowed us to consider and summarize the points of view set forth in the legal science about the definition of the essence, the signs of the category “legal security”, the mechanism for its ensuring, and then translate the focus of our researching on the procedural security in the context of its specific features and the content; also they allowed to characterize the security threats for the objects of the procedural protection and the system of measures providing it. The analysis of the presented positions allowed the authors to come to the conclusions about insufficient researching of the security problem and the forms of its ensuring in civil-procedural relations, and about the existence of a significant work potential in the given direction of research.

In the work for the first time, the definition of the procedural security in the civil process was formulated at the theoretical level, significant signs of this phenomenon were identified, a system of measures and other means called to guarantee the safety of the civil procedure character was developed.

The proposed conclusions can be used for further researching to improve the legal regulation of the civil procedural form.
