CPRC Costs Sub-Committee provides update on fixed costs

The minutes of the CPRC’s March 2022 meeting were published today and can be found here.

The Costs sub-Committee confirmed that work has commenced in respect of the extended fixed costs regime which was reported last year. The committee’s first meeting was held last month but a precise timetable has yet to be fixed.

The Sub-Committee will also be considering FRC in the context of vulnerable witnesses/parties and there is likely to be a substantive review of the structure of CPR 45.

It was also confirmed that a consultation is anticipated in respect of Qualified One Way Costs Shifting (QOCS).
