The neutral citation system is defined in s.63 (8) of the Supreme Court Practice Directions as follows:

“A neutral citation is a Court-approved system of citation which is independent of the series of law reports or other publication, and unique to each written judgment. Each written judgment from a particular level of Court is assigned a sequential number, starting from 1 at the beginning of each calendar year.”
