Amendments to Simple Procedure & FAI Rules

The Scottish Civil Justice Council has published an Act of Sederunt that will amend the Simple Procedure Rules and the Fatal Accident Inquiry Rules. The Act of Sederunt (Sheriff Court Rules Amendment) (Miscellaneous) 2017 will come into force on 15th June.

Since the Simple Procedure Rules came into operation in November 2016, feedback has indicated that amendments are required to improve and clarify them. The Act of Sederunt implements these recommendations.

With regard to the FAI Rules, the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee of the Scottish Parliament raised minor drafting issues while considering them in committee. The new Act of Sederunt is designed to make these amendments prior to the commencement of the FAI Rules.
