Feedback from TeCSA members on the use of the eDisclosure Protocol

Dear All

On 1 November 2013, TeCSA, TECBAR and the SCL launched its eDisclosure Protocol and Guidelines with the aim of assisting their members with the increasingly problematic issue of handling eDisclosure.

Mr Justice Edwards-Stuart has set up a Working Group comprising those who drafted the Protocol to monitor its progress and recommend whether any amendments are necessary based on user's feedback.

Anecdotal evidence is that the Protocol is proving very useful both to the legal community and to eDisclosure providers.  This said, we would greatly appreciate any feedback from TeCSA members on the use of the Protocol (good or bad) so that this can be considered by the Working Group at its first meeting on 22 May 2014.

A bottle of Taittinger Vintage Champagne awaite the best feedback submission!

All feedback should be sent to Steven Williams, Partner at Nabarro LLP (

Kind regards


Chairman of TeCSA


Chairman's Report 2013

Please see Chairman's Report here


TeCSA, TECBAR and Society of Computers and the Law have worked over the past 9 months to formulate and agree upon the attached near final draft of the E-Disclosure Protocol, Guidelines and Timeline. It is now before the TCC Judges for comment. 


The draft TeCSA E-Disclosure Protocol, TeCSA  E-Disclosure Guidelines and TeCSA E-Disclosure Timeline (more for Court matters but a good aide memoire all the same even in arbitration) together with a full guide to E-Disclosure prepared for TeCSA by Andrew Haslam are on this link. These first three documents incorporate the consolidated current views of all three organisations on best practice with dealing with larger document cases. The Protocolincludes a valuable claw back provision for inadvertent disclosure within clause 7.2.  The E-Disclosure Guidelines includes an “introduction/commentary” that covers the practical points about how to use the Protocol on a paragraph-by-paragraph basis.


TeCSA is hoping to finalise its E-Disclosure Protocol material before November 2013, this link takes you to the latest draft materials for your information and use in the meantime.
