The issuance of a Norwich Pharmacal Order for the disclosure of documents and information, is an important tool in the hands of litigants because it permits a claimant to obtain information and documents to plead and prove his case, to identify the wrongdoers, to discover and preserve any significant evidence that is relevant to the case as well as to trace and preserve stolen assets. Such orders can also be made against a third party who has been innocently or not involved in wrongdoing.

Recently the Cyprus Courts have expanded the notion of Norwich Pharmacal Orders to include electronic disclosures against the wrongdoers, in particular the inspection of a database and the computer system by an independent expert in order to protect the interests of disclosing parties.
