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.

Warning: on 31 December 2020, CPR 6.33, which sets out the criteria to determine whether a claim form can be served without the court’s permission, was amended under The Civil Procedure Rules 1998 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/521. 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.
