Supreme Court Practice Directions

Practice Directions and Registrar's Circulars are issued by the courts to supplement the Rules of Court by regulating court practice and procedure. Court users are expected to comply with all Practice Directions and Registrar's Circulars issued by the court. Until 1994, Practice Directions were issued as discrete documents; since then, however, all Practice Directions have been consolidated into a publication known as The Supreme Court Practice Directions.

Since 16 March 2010, the Supreme Court had launched the electronic Practice Directions (or "e-PD"), which is now the authoritative version and replaces the previous hardcopy edition.

With effect from October 2018, the Supreme Court has moved the e-PD to an OpenDoc platform created by GovTech. Users may access the e-PD via or by scanning the QR code below.
