Electronic working in the Senior Courts Costs Office


Practice Notice by the Senior Costs Judge

Following the amendments to PD51O of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 (The Electronic Working Pilot Scheme), which come into effect on 7 October 2019, the Senior Courts Costs Office (the Costs Office) is now using the CE-File electronic court file.

Court users are able to file documents electronically direct to the court file by logging onto e-File (external link, opens in a new tab).

Further practical guidance for users of CE-File (external link, opens in a new tab) can be found on GOV.UK.

Please read the full details in the Practice Note attached below.
