Offshore: Challenge Guernsey
The chief source of Guernsey's rules of civil procedure are currently the Royal Court Civil Rules (RCCR) which date back to 1989. These are largely based on the English Rules of the Supreme Court (RSC), which have now been superseded in England by the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) 1998. The CPR came into force on 26 April, 1999, as a result of Lord Woolf's recommendations to consolidate and modernise the rules of civil procedure in the UK. The aim of the new rules was to simplify and speed up the process of taking cases through the courts. Among other things, the new rules introduced strict timetables and pre-action protocols consisting of guidelines on the steps to be taken before commencing a court action.
