The Ministry of Justice are launching a new pilot Practice Direction 36H on Monday 23 July, applying to FGM and Forced Marriage protection orders (and variation, extension and discharge thereof). It is designed to improve notification to the police when a court makes these types of orders.

The pilot PD 36H provides:
  • Applicants (or bailiffs on behalf of the court where an applicant in person) are required to serve the order on the respondent within two days of the order being made by the court.
  • A certificate of service must be submitted to the court by the applicant or bailiff within 7 days of service on the respondent. 
  • If the court has not received a certificate of service within the anticipated timeframe, HMCTS will refer the file to a judge to consider what further order, if any, is required.
  • Applicants will be required to notify the police through a centralised email address within two days of the respondent being served with the order.
  • Where service has been effected by the court, the court must serve the order on the centralised police email address within one working day of receipt of the certificate of service from the court bailiff. 
The pilot will run nationally for six months, concluding on Friday 25th January 2019. The pilot PD 36H can be found here: FGM Pilot PD 36H .pdf
