There are certain types of expert reports where you can apply using templates which reduce the amount of information you require to provide. A template request can only be made for the first request for sanction of a particular expert in a case.
The templates appear on the online system and include:
Drugs experts (£250)
Firearms experts (£250)
Road traffic experts (£750)
Medical reports (£300)
A template sanction application cannot be used for:
reports from psychiatrists or psychologists
reports from a general practitioner.
Where a template sanction application is submitted we simply require the name and location of the expert you intend to instruct.
It is important that you:
confirm with the expert that they are able to provide any report instructed within the template limit
remember that we require to be satisfied that it is reasonable and necessary to instruct a particular expert.
