Simple procedure implementation

Oct 21, 2016

The Act of Sederunt (Rules of the Court of Session 1994 and Sheriff Court Rules Amendment) (No. 4) (Simple Procedure) 2016 is part of the implementation programme for simple procedure and comes into force on the same day, 28 November 2016, as the relevant parts of the Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2016 and the simple procedure rules. 

This Act of Sederunt completes the implementation by making the necessary changes to other instruments in order to allow the new simple procedure to operate alongside and with them. 

It also makes some adjustments and alterations to the core set of rules before they come into force.
