Professional Users’ Court and Tribunals Access Scheme
The Bar Council spoke with HMCTS on Friday 22 April 2022 and sought their agreement to extend the expiration date for existing ID Cards from 30 April 2022 to 31 May 2022, which means that users will not need to log-on to MyBar and renew their existing cards until next month. The Bar Council will contact relevant persons closer to the date in question with details of the renewal process. Please note that the expiration date shown on existing cards will not change from 30 April 2022, but that this should not impact upon barristers’ ability to use the fast-track security lanes within the relevant court and tribunal buildings. 
Unfortunately, at the time of writing and due to ongoing technical difficulties, the Bar Council is not able to issue members who do not currently use the Scheme with new ID Cards. However, those who are interested in obtaining a card can email to receive a notification email and further instructions when MyBar has been reinstated. In the meantime, please accept the apologies of the Bar Council for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience at this time.
