UK: CONSULTATION ON AMENDMENTS TO DISCLOSURE RULES

On 26 February, HM Attorney General’s Office launched a consultation on revisions to the Attorney General’s Guidelines on Disclosure and the CPIA Code of Practice and called for evidence.  This is said to be part of an ongoing project to identify and incorporate improvements to sources of guidance on disclosure – the process whereby relevant unused material, gathered during the course of an investigation, is provided to the defence.  The consultation closes on 22 April.  The 2 sets of guidance were revised to reflect the challenges of modern disclosure practice, including the increase of digital material and the delays this increase causes.
