This Practice Note is for historical reference only as it explains Part 36 of the CPR as it was in force prior to 6 April 2015. If you have received or are making a Part 36 offer on or after 6 April 2015 you need to refer to the current in force CPR 36 and Practice Notes and Precedents covering this. See Practice Note: Part 36 offers in personal injury claims and Part 36 offers—overview.

If you have made or are in receipt of a Part 36 offer which pre-dates 6 April 2015 then the Part 36 rules in force prior to that date apply. You can access a copy of the pre-6 April 2015 Part 36 rules here:

If you have made or are in receipt of a Part 36 offer which pre-dates 6 April 2015 but where a trial of any part of the claim or any issue arising in it is due to start on or after 6 April 2015 then you will need to consider the new CPR 36 as to acceptance, disclosure and definitions. See Practice Note: Illustrating the changes—the transitional provisions for the revised Part 36 in force as of 6 April 2015 for further guidance.
