New High Court Practice Direction (“HC75”) in Non-Jury and Chancery lists

According to the New High Court Practice Direction (HC75), as and from 9 April 2018 a “party who desires to certify the proceedings as ready for trial and to seek a hearing date shall give a month’s notice to the other parties of the intention to do so. During that period the parties must consult so as to ensure accurate completion of the Certificate of Readiness, particularly insofar as the duration of the trial is concerned.”

Furthermore, “a failure to provide an accurate certificate particularly concerning the duration of the trial or to cooperate in the consultation process may result in costs consequences for the parties regardless of the result of the action.”
