Service outside the jurisdiction—Form N510

This Practice Note considers the requirement for completing Court Form N510 (Notice for service out of the jurisdiction where permission of the court is not required) when serving a claim form out of the jurisdiction without the court’s permission. It explains what Form N510 is and when it must be used. It then explains the different parts of the form to be completed, depending on which jurisdiction the claim form is to be served in. It also provides some considerations when completing Form N510 and explains the consequences of a failure to complete it correctly. Finally, it covers when the form must be filed and served and the consequences if this does not take place.

A new version of Form N510 was published by the Ministry of Justice on Thursday, 18 March 2021. Substantial amendments were made to the form to reflect the amendments made to Part 6 (rules on service) as a consequence of the UK leaving the EU. For guidance on the amendments made to Part 6, see Practice Note: Tracker—changes to CPR 6 and practice direction 6B. Explanations as to the deleted categories in the form are provided in Part of Form N510 deleted on 18 March 2021 below.

For guidance as to whether the court’s permission will be required to serve a claim form out of the jurisdiction,
