Preparation of reports

 

After completing an analysis of the forensic physical evidence available, a report is prepared setting out the basis of the analysis and the conclusions that have been obtained.

 

In accordance with Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules, the report is addressed to the Court and not to any party employing the Investigator.  The structure of a report is also governed by the Civil Procedure Rules.

 

The admissibility of the report is governed by the guidelines issued in the case of Liddell -v- Middleton.

 

The report is usually accompanied by photographs and scale plans.
