7.47 Drawing up and sealing interlocutory order


A party may draw up an interlocutory order and submit it to the Registrar for sealing.


Despite subclause (1), a party who obtains an interlocutory order must draw up the order and submit it to the Registrar for sealing if the order—


affects a person who is not a party; or


joins a person as a party; or


directs that it be served on a person.


If a party elects to have an order sealed, or is required by the court or by these rules to have an order sealed, the following provisions apply:


the party must file an original order together with sufficient copies so that the party and the other parties who have given an address for service can each receive a duplicate sealed order:


the order must be in form G 34:


the order must specify the date on which it was made:


the Registrar, when satisfied with the form of the order, must sign and seal the original and every copy:


the Registrar must mark every copy with the word “duplicate”:


the Registrar must retain the original on the file:


the party who submitted the order for sealing must promptly serve a sealed copy on every other party who has given an address for service and on any person affected by the order.
