This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules, which (except for rules 7 to 13) come into force on 3 June 2014, correct errors in rules 9.60 and 12.5 and clarify that form G 6 is not to be used in proceedings under section 13 of the Trans-Tasman Proceedings Act 2010. These rules also align the drafting of rules 15.9 and 26.27 with the language to be used in the new District Courts Rules 2014, in order to ensure better consistency between the 2 sets of rules and to resolve 2 legal questions that are not currently addressed expressly in the High Court Rules. Rules 7 to 13, which come into force on 13 September 2014, will amend the High Court Rules consequentially on the commencement of the remaining uncommenced provisions of the Patents Act 2013.
Date of notification in Gazette: 17 April 2014.
These rules are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
