EFIS 9, March 2002 : Civil Procedure

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Civil Procedure (Amendment No. 4) Rules 2001 will introduce new Parts 70, 71, 72 and 73 of the Civil Procedure Rules from 25th March as a result of the Lord Chancellor's Enforcement Review. Practitioners should study the transitional provisions in these Rules.

N8 and N15 are the amended Arbitration Act Claim Form and Acknowledgment of Service Form which replace your existing versions of forms HCNO8A and HCNO15A from 25th March.

N316 replaces the current version of N316 on your system and also High Court Form HCPF98 which will become obsolete after 25th March.

N316A is a new form, which is similar to N316 but should be issued to compel an officer of a company, which owes money to attend court for questioning.

N322A replaces your current version of this form on your system but also N322H, which you should delete after 25th March.

N342 is an amended version of the current form.

N349 not only replaces your current version of this form but also High Court HCPF100 which becomes obsolete from 25th March.

N379 and N380 are both new forms for use in both the County Court and High Court.

N446 amends the current version of this form on your system.

EX140 records the evidence of an individual debtor whilst EX141 records similar evidence provided by an officer of a debtor company.

Due to these CPR changes, certain High & County Court forms will become obsolete on or after 25th March. Practitioners may wish to delete these forms from their system.

Unconnected to the aforementioned changes to the Civil Procedure Rules, the Court Service have advised us of amendments to the notes which accompany N1. The updated version of N1 containing amended notes N1C and N1(FD) is enclosed.

Separate amendments have been made to N256 and N256(HC) which are also available. They are unrelated to the changes to the Civil Procedure Rules.

Finally, please note that Chepstow and Monmouth County Courts will be closed as of 1st April 2002. In order to keep your systems up to date, please download our copy of the Court Service Database (CPR.MDB) from the Support section of the web site and extract/copy into the path as displayed in: Tools>Options>Database.
