A Practical Guide to The Information Gateway

Posted: 08/12/2022

On 1 October 2022 CPR PD6B was amended to add new jurisdiction “gateways”. The jurisdiction gateways play a crucial role in determining what claims have a sufficient factual connection with England and Wales to establish jurisdiction over that claim. The effect of the amendments to PD6B is to increase the circumstances in which the Court of England and Wales might take jurisdiction in a number of important respects. One such amendment is the new paragraph 3.1(25) – the “Information Gateway”, which expressly gives the Court a power to order persons who are outside the jurisdiction to provide certain information.
