Rule 16: Application and repeal
Save for those matters to which the SRA Disciplinary Procedure Rules 2010 (the 2010 rules) apply in accordance with rule 16.2, these rules apply to acts or omissions whenever they occur, unless occurring wholly before 1 June 2010.
These rules repeal the 2010 rules, save that the 2010 rules shall continue to apply to matters in which an explanation has been sought or a report issued in accordance with rule 5 or 6 of those rules, or in which an SRA finding or application to the Tribunal has been made without an explanation having been sought or a report issued in accordance with rule 6(11) of those rules.
