The Ministry of Justice has signed the 112th update—practice direction amendments which makes a technical change to the 111th update for the Online Civil Money Claims (OCMC) pilot.
The amendment to CPR PD 51R, para 2.1(1), set out in the 111th update, provided for the pilot to apply to claims submitted to the court on or after 11 am on 9 September 2019.
However, this did not take into account the fact that under the same update, amendments were made to CPR PD 51R to extend the duration of the OCMC pilot scheme. The amendment in the 112th update is a ‘narrow technical amendment’ to address this and to ensure that the extension of the pilot/Practice Direction will apply to pre-existing claims ie those commenced prior to 9 September 2019.
The changes come into force on 28 November 2019, the original end date for the pilot scheme was 30 November 2019 but this has now been extended for two years until 30 November 2021.
The update is available here:
