Practice Guidance: Publication of Privacy and Anonymity Orders

|latest

This guidance sets out recommended practice to courts and parties concerning the provision of copies of court orders for publication. It is issued as guidance and not as a Practice Direction by the Master of the Rolls as Head of Civil Justice.

Civil Procedure Rules r.39.2(5) provides that, except where it otherwise directs, a copy of a court order made under CPR r.39.2(3) or r.39.2(4) shall be published on the website of the Judiciary of England and Wales.

Update: The document below replaces the earlier version. Paragraph 3 was amended on 3 May 2019 in the light of a typographical slip, so as replace reference to CPR r.39.2(4) and (5) with reference to r.39.2(3) and (4).
