FEDERAL CIRCUIT COURT RULES 2001 - RULE 15.28

Documents annexed or exhibited

             (1)  A document to be used in conjunction with an affidavit must be annexed to the affidavit.

             (2)  However, if because of the nature of the document or its length it is impractical to annex the document, it may be made an exhibit to the affidavit.

             (3)  An annexure must:

                     (a)  be paginated; and

                     (b)  bear a statement signed by the person before whom the affidavit is made identifying it as the particular annexure mentioned in the affidavit.

             (4)  If there is more than 1 annexure, the pagination must be consecutive until the last page of the annexures and identified by page number in the affidavit.

Example:    For an affidavit with 10 annexures totalling 100 pages, the first page of the first annexure is page 1 and the last page of the last annexure is page 100.  An annexure would be identified in the affidavit in the following way: 'Annexed and marked with the letter G (pages 72-81) is a copy of the agreement for sale'.

             (5)  An exhibit must:

                     (a)  be marked with the title and number of the proceeding; and

                     (b)  be paginated; and

                     (c)  bear a statement signed by the person before whom the affidavit is made identifying it as the particular exhibit mentioned in the affidavit.

             (6)  A document annexed or exhibited to an affidavit must be served with the affidavit.
