Document exchange (DX)

This method of service can only be used if either the party’s address for service includes a numbered box at a DX on the writing paper of the party to be served, or his legal representative, where that legal representative is authorised to accept service, sets out the DX box number. This is the only positive requirement imposed upon a party who wishes to utilise DX for service. In fact, in order to avoid service by DX, the party to be served must have indicated in writing that they are unwilling to accept service by DX (PD 6, para 2.1).
