Disclosure: CPRC approval of Pilot Scheme for the Business and Property Courts
CPRC approves new disclosure regime for the Business and Property Courts
On 13 July 2018, the Civil Procedure Rule Committee gave its final approval to the launch of the proposal to run a two-year Disclosure Pilot scheme for cases proceeding in the Business and Property Courts in England and Wales. Subject to Ministerial consent (which will be sought later this year), the scheme will commence on 1 January 2019. In the meantime, the Disclosure Working Group has been authorised to publish the CPRC approved version of the Practice Direction and Disclosure Review Document in draft to allow court users, the profession and judiciary time to prepare for the commencement of the Disclosure Pilot.
