Please click here to view the final approved draft of the revised PD27A (‘Bundles’ Practice Direction), which comes in to force on 23 July 2018.

The draft has been approved by the President, the Family Procedure Rule Committee and by the Master of the Rolls, and awaits only a formal signature by the Minister.

The basic PD27A remains as before but there are three main changes, which are:

(i) the introduction of page limits for certain types of document (these can, of course, be varied by the judge if necessary in any particular case),

(ii) further requirements in relation to bundles of authorities, and

(iii) the inclusion of various provisions making clear that PD27A applies, with certain modifications, to electronic as well as to paper bundles.
