Procedure Rules – updates to civil rules come into force

Updates to the rules on how some types of civil cases are managed or prepared for court come into force on 1 October.


The changes include extending the remit of court enforcement officers to enforce ACAS settlements, and a cost cap of £50,000 for liability claims in low value intellectual property cases.


There are no changes to the family procedure (adoption) rules, while some rule changes for criminal cases are due to come into force on 4 October.
