ELECTRONIC FILING: SERVICE LEVELS

with one comment


 

Earlier this month I completed an 8 day trek in the Sahara Desert to raise money for the Lord’s Taverners cricket charity for disadvantaged children. Please go here if you would like to make a donation.

 

From 25 April 2017 the use of the Courts Electronic Filing (CE-File) system has been compulsory for all professional users in the Rolls Building courts in London.

 

The Courts Charter for the Rolls Building has been revised to refer to CE-File. The charter sets out the following service levels for accepting documents submitted using CE-File:

 

  • All originating processes, applications, acknowledgments of service and defence will be accepted not more that ninety minutes from the time the document is submitted during working hours.

 

  • Any other document submitted, including consent orders, will be accepted not more than three hours from the time the document is submitted.

 

  • Office copy requests will be accepted within 48 hours.

 

  • The court will process applications and orders accepted via CE-File within five working days, although it appears that the court will prioritise matters marked as urgent upon submission.

 

For these purposes, working hours are 10:00 to 16:30, Monday to Friday, excluding national holidays. For anything filed outside these hours, the time for the court to respond will start from the commencement of the next working day.

 

Practice Direction 51O has been revised with effect from 25 April 2017, and that there will be specific provisions relating to some insolvency processes.

 

Further guidance is provided in Gov.uk: CE-File system information and support advice and Practice note, Electronic working in the UK courts.
