Disclosure: CPRC approval of pilot scheme for Business and Property Courts – the drafts

The Courts and Tribunals Judiciary website, has published the documents relating to the pilot scheme for disclosure, initially in the Business and Property Courts of England and Wales. The documents are those approved by the Civil Procedure Rule Committee and comprise a press announcement, the draft Practice Direction, the draft Disclosure Review Document, the draft Certificate of Compliance, and the draft Disclosure Certificate.

As a reminder, these are the post-consultation drafts of what will eventually be a new disclosure rule replacing the present Part 31, its practice directions, and the present Electronic Documents Questionnaire.

I was one of those who helped draft the present Practice Direction 31B and the EDQ, and have a particular interest in the proposed replacements. That interest does not translate into an immediate review of these documents which were published only yesterday.

You might like to look at them for yourself. I will come back to them shortly.
