  • Telephone hearings in the TCC
  • Video conferencing in the TCC
  • Attending a hearing in the TCC

This Practice Note looks at how interim applications made in the Technology and Construction Court (TCC) are determined under CPR 60, CPR PD 60 and the Technology and Construction Court Guide, section 6.

In particular it considers consent orders, paper applications (ie where the application is dealt with without an oral hearing), telephone hearings, video conferencing and what happens at an interim hearing, including submissions that can be made to the TCC and applications without notice (AWNs).

Guidance is also given on what happens after the hearing, including how the order is drawn up and how the parties can seek to challenge an interim order made by the TCC by way of applications to set aside, vary or appeal.

Finally, practical tips on TCC interim hearings are offered.
