Coming of Age: Amendments to Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2011 in BVI

April 2012 Jerry D. Samuel

Enactment of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2011 (the “Amended Rules”) on 1 October 2011 was largely welcomed by BVI commercial practitioners, not least because it introduced long awaited revisions to the service out regime under Part 7 of the CPR. However, the Amended Rules should be welcome generally, since they represent the most extensive amendments to the CPR since initial enactment in 2000, effecting long awaited changes to some 16 Parts of the CPR.

The amendments touch on a wide range of provisions, from the mundane to the complex. This article gives a brief overview of the changes with some focus on those changes affecting commercial practice.
