  • A defendant in Cyprus has expressly agreed to accept service by email. Do I still need to make an application for permission to serve the claim form out of the jurisdiction?

Cyprus is part of the EU.

The process of effecting service of documents between EU Member States is governed by the process of service rules set out in Regulation (EC) 1393/2007, the Service Regulation (CPR 6.40(3)(a)(i)). This is a mandatory and exhaustive code and must be complied with. For guidance on the regulation, see Practice Note: The Service Regulation—service outside the jurisdiction.

Although the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020, the Service Regulation continues to apply between the UK and EU Member States during 2020 due to transitional provisions in Article 68 of the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU. For guidance, see Practice Note: Serving outside the jurisdiction—serving in an EU Membe
