Change to Registrar in Bankruptcy of the High Court title—effective 26 February 2018

With effect from 26 February 2018 the name of the office of ‘Registrar in Bankruptcy of the High Court’ is amended to the ‘Insolvency and Companies Court Judge’.

This is as a result of the coming into effect of Statutory Instrument ‘The Alteration of Judicial Titles (Registrar in Bankruptcy of the High Court) Order 2018’ SI 2018/130.

The legislation also changes the style of those appointed to act as deputies or as temporary additional officers in relation to that office from Deputy Registrar in Bankruptcy of the High Court to Deputy Insolvency and Companies Court Judges.

According to the explanatory memorandum the purpose of the name change is to provide judicial titles which provide clarity to court users and bring the titles of these judicial offices in line with the name of the Bankruptcy and Companies Courts in which these judges sit.
