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 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.

However, savings provisions for CPR 6.33(2) were introduced by The Civil, Criminal and Family Justice (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020, SI 2020/1493 dealing with whether permission is required where the court has jurisdiction under Regulation (EU) 1215/2012, Brussels I (recast). Note there are no savings provisions for old rule 6.33(1) allowing service without the court’s permission in a Lugano Convention state.
