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) is a report which is intended to provide an experts opinion on a subject within their expertise, in order to assist 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 applied that must be adhered to for each report 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 being present. A Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness report should also include both facts and assumptions used by the Expert, along with any analysis and the Expert’s opinion on the matter.

Each Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness report must also lay out the qualifications of the Expert, along with the details of the methodology used when putting the report together.
