What is Standard Disclosure?

Standard disclosure is the process by which both parties in civil or tribunal litigation provide a list of documents which they intend to rely on at trial or which are relevant to any issues of the case. Parties are required to carry out reasonable searches of documents in their control or possession, or within their power to obtain, which are relevant to the issues of the case and which support or undermine the furtherance of the issue in their case.

Upon providing disclosure, the other party is entitled to request inspection of documents in the disclosure list – that, is obtain copies of those documents. A party is only entitled to withhold inspection of documents if they are covered by legal professional privilege.
