421 Service

(1) A subpoena may be served under chapter 4 , parts 2 , 3 , 4 and 5 on the person to whom it is directed.
(2) Also, a subpoena may instead be served by—
(a) if the subpoena was issued electronically—the subpoena being emailed to the person; or
(b) if the subpoena was issued in any other way—an imaged copy of the subpoena being emailed to the person.
(3) However, compliance with a subpoena served under this rule may be enforced, and a proceeding may be taken for noncompliance with the subpoena, only if it is proved that—
(a) the subpoena, or an imaged copy of the subpoena, has been received by the person to whom it is directed; or
(b) the person to whom the subpoena is directed has actual knowledge of the subpoena.
(4) Despite rule 414 (8) , the person to whom a subpoena is directed need not comply with the requirements of the subpoena unless it is served on the person on or before the date stated in the subpoena as the last date for service of the subpoena.
(5) In this rule—

"imaged copy" , of a subpoena, means a copy of the subpoena in electronic form, created by scanning or otherwise imaging the subpoena in its paper form.

"last date" , for service of a subpoena, see rule 415 (10) .
