Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness Reports

What are Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness Reports?

A Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness Report (also known as a CPR 35 Compliant) provides an experts opinion on a subject within their expertise. This assists a court on making decisions around an area outside of its own expertise.

Due to Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness reports being used as evidence in court, there are strict rules that apply. These must be adhered to to ensure that the document is fully compliant with Civil Procedure Rules (CPR). All expert witness reports must be accurate, up to date and impartial, giving an overview of the situation without any influence or bias. A Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness report should include both facts and assumptions used by the Expert. It should also include any analysis and the Expert’s opinion on the matter.

Each Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness report must lay out the qualifications of the Expert. It must also detail the methodology used when putting the report together.
