Professional Practice Committee guidance on the Provision of Services Regulations 2009
22 February 2011
Guidance for barristers produced by the Professional Practice
Committee of the Bar Council on the Provision of Services
Regulations 2009 (the 'Regulations') has been sent to all Heads of
Chambers this week. The guidance is also available on the Bar
Council website at /assets/documents/Provision%20of%20Services%20guidance.pdf
Directive 2006/123 on services in the Internal Market (the
'Directive') imposes new obligations on barristers in respect of
the information which barristers must provide to their clients. The
Directive was implemented in the United Kingdom via the
Regulations, which came into force on 28 December 2009.
This guidance is intended to help all barristers to meet their
obligations under the Directive and the Regulations. If you have
any queries about this guidance, please contact the Bar Council's
Ethical Enquiries Line on 020 7611 1307.
