1.    INTRODUCTION

 

 

1.1       The Claim Production Centre (CPC) is governed by The Civil Procedure Rules Part 7, rule 7.10(3) and supplemented by Practice Direction 7C (Annex A).

 

 

1.2       The purpose of the CPC is to relieve county courts of much of the routine repetitive work associated with the issue of straightforward money claims.  The CPC accounts for the court fees, produces the, creates the court’s record and then envelopes and despatches of the claim to the defendant.

 

 

1.3       This document sets out the Code of Practice to be followed when issuing through the CPC.  Organisations that can comply with this code and provide their claim information in a fixed format on magnetic media (see section 4) may issue their claims through the CPC.  The CPC aim is to produce and despatch claims from requests received on magnetic media on the day of receipt.

 

 

1.4       The term “Centre User” will be used throughout this document to be a claimant issuing its own claims, possibly using an in-house solicitor, or it may be a solicitor who issues claims on behalf of many claimants.

 

 

1.6       The term “CPC Manager” will be used throughout this document to indicate the officer in charge of the CPC or another officer acting on his behalf.


2.     ROLE OF THE CLAIM PRODUCTION CENTRE

 

 

2.1       The CPC shall handle such functions relating to the production of claims and other related matters as the Secretary of State may direct.

 

 

2.2       The initial business of the CPC shall be limited to the issue of claims  and associated county court documentation from requests to issue presented on magnetic media by the Centre User.

 

 

2.3       The Centre User shall restrict all requests for issue of claims through the CPC to the type of work set out in Practice Direction 7C (Annex A).  In particular, claims are limited to defendants who reside or carry on business within the jurisdiction, that is, in England or Wales.

 

 

2.4       For any purposes connected with the issue of claims the CPC shall act on behalf of the county court whose name appears on the claim or in whose name the claim is requested to be issued.

 


3.      AUTHORITY FOR ISSUE OF CLAIMS THROUGH THE CPC

 

 

3.1       A claimant or solicitor acting on behalf of the claimant (a potential Centre User)  shall give notice to the CPC Manager of his intention to issue claims through the CPC.

 

 

3.2       The CPC Manager shall confirm whether a potential Centre User may issue through the CPC.  Upon giving such confirmation he/she shall allocate a distinguishing number known as the National Creditor Code or ‘CPC Number’ to the Centre User.

 

 

3.3       The ‘CPC Number’ shall be used at the CPC to identify the Centre User and authority for Centre User to issue through the CPC.

 

 

3.4       Where a Centre User is permitted to issue claims through the CPC, the CPC Manager shall allocate a range of claim numbers to the Centre User.  These numbers will be unique throughout the County Court system.  The Centre User shall assign a separate claim number from this range to every claim submitted for issue through the CPC.

 

 

3.5       Each claim request submitted by the Centre User for issue by the CPC shall contain the necessary party and claim details as set out in Annex B (This conforms to existing county court guidelines and failure to comply may result in withdrawal of the authority to issue through the CPC.)


4.     USE OF MAGNETIC MEDIA FOR  CLAIM ISSUE

 

 

4.1       The Centre user shall submit all requests to issue claims to the CPC on magnetic media.

 

 

4.2       The magnetic media options supported by the CPC shall be limited to:

 

           

            (a)       3½” MS-DOS formatted high density diskette, written normally              or using the PKZIP compression utility           or

 

(b)       electronic file transfer (see or request separate document  “Electronic Transfer for County Court Bulk Centre Customers, Customer Information Pack”)

 

     For ease of reference the magnetic media will be referred to as “data file” throughout sections 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Code of Practice.  The data content for each data file is specified at Annex C.  Each data file shall be unlabelled and confirm to ANSI Standard ASCII Format.

 

 

4.3       Each data file submitted by the Centre User to the CPC shall consist of header information, identifying the Centre User and data file number, followed by the request data for each of the claims to be issued, and trailer information containing control totals at the end of the data file.

 

 

4.4       Prior to the submission of requests to issue claims on data file, the Centre user shall submit test data files for processing by the CPC.  The accuracy of the output produced from the test data files shall be confirmed as acceptable by the Centre User and the CPC Manager before live claims issue may commence.

 

 

4.5       The Centre User shall submit an advice note with each data file.  The advice note shall include:

                                   

·      CPC Number

·      Number of requests on the data file

·      Total fee amount payable

·      Date of the data file

·      Sequence number to uniquely identify the data file (see example at Annex D)

·      a signed Statement of Truth

    

 

4.6       Failure to produce an advice note will result in delay to the processing of the data file.

 

 

4.7       Where the data file is sent by FTP, the advice note may be sent by fax or by email to: customerservice.cpc@hmcourts-service.gsi.gov.uk and must reach the CPC by 10am. Failure to receive the advice note will result in delay to the processing of the file.

 

 

4.8       The Centre User shall give the CPC Manager reasonable notice of any occasion on which he desires to issue more than 3,000 claims on one day.  The CPC Manager reserves the right to offer alternative claim issue dates if other data files of over 3,000 claims are already booked for the date requested by the Centre User.

 

 

4.9       Where advance notice has been given, the Centre User shall submit a maximum of 12,000 claim records per data file.

 

 

 


5.      DATA INPUT REQUIREMENTS

 

 

5.1       The CPC Number shall be quoted by the Centre User on all data files sent to the CPC for processing and included on any written correspondence.

 

 

5.2       The Centre User shall provide the name of the authority for the particulars of claim in advance to the CPC.  If there are circumstances where a Centre User uses more than one name, each new occurrence of the name shall be treated as a new Centre User (eg different solicitor acting).

 

 

5.3       Where the same claimant details are to be used on all claims issued by a Centre User, then these details may be given in advance to the CPC.

 

 

5.4       Where a Centre User is a solicitor or uses a different correspondence name and/or address from that given in the claimant details then such details shall be given in advance to the CPC.

 

 

5.5       Claim Numbers from the range allotted to the Centre User by the CPC Manager shall be assigned sequentially by the Centre User to any claims included on the data file sent for processing.  Each claim number from the range shall be prefixed by a year identified e.g. 4 for 2004.  At the beginning of a new calendar year the Centre User shall revert to the first number in the range for the succeeding years issue and change the year identity to reflect the new year.

 

 

5.6       The Centre User shall provide the claim data on each data file in claim number order.  Each claim number shall be used once only by the Centre User.

 

 

5.7       The Centre User shall use the CPC supplied court code number to identify the court in whose name each claim shall issue.  A list of the CPC court codes is included at Annex E.

 

 

5.8       If the Centre User submits more than one data file at a time each data file shall have the standard header and trailer records which relate to that individual file and must be accompanied by a separate Advice Notice.

 

 

5.9       The Centre User shall include an ascending sequence number on each header record to ensure that no file is processed twice. Each customer will start with sequence 001 and increment each file by one until 999 is reached, then revert back to 001.

 

5.10 File names on data files will be in the following format ‘9999xx.999’. The first set of numbers will be the Centre User’s code, the characters will be ss for claims. The file extension will be the sequence number.


6.      CPC PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS

 

 

6.1       The Centre User-supplied data files shall be validated by the CPC to ensure that all necessary fields have been entered, that the fees have been correctly calculated, that the costs are within the scale allowed and that the claim numbers have not been previously used.

 

 

6.2       The date of issue of the validated claims shall be determined by the CPC.  Where the data file and Advice Notice are both received by 10:00am the date of issue shall be the same as the date of receipt.  In all other instances the date of issue shall be the next working day following receipt.

 

 

6.3       A summary issue/service notification shall be produced by the CPC for each data file processed and despatched to the Centre User (example at Annex F).

 

 

6.4       The claim documentation shall be printed by the CPC from the information on the data file and from claimant, solicitor and particulars of claim authority details supplied in advance by the Centre User.

 

 

6.5       Each claim shall be issued in the name of the court supplied by the Centre User.  Where the Centre User supplies a court which has been closed, or which is not present within the courts listed at Annex E, then the request to issue shall be rejected and shall be reported as not issued.

 

 

6.6       Where validation errors on the data file exceed a maximum of 10, the CPC shall return the file to the Centre User with details of the errors found and confirmation that no claims have been issued (see example at Annex G).

 

 

6.7       The CPC shall effect service of all valid claims on the defendant by first class post within 2 working days of the date of issue of the claim.  The claim will be deemed served on the defendant on the fifth day after issue, regardless of whether that is a Saturday or Sunday.

 

 

6.8       Notice of non-service shall be given by the CPC to the Centre User on all claims returned by the Post Office as undeliverable.  The CPC shall forward the undelivered claim to the Centre User and advise the appropriate county court.  The Centre User shall pursue all proceedings subsequent to issue at the court named on the claim.


7.      ACCOUNTING REQUIREMENTS

 

 

7.1       Fees for issue of claims at the CPC shall be payable at the CPC.

 

 

7.2       Payment for fees for issue of claims shall precede or accompany the receipt of the data file by the CPC.

 

 

7.3       Centre Users may maintain a fee deposit account with the CPC or submit payment by single cheque for each data file of claims fees.  Alternatively, payment of fees can be made via BACS.  Full account details will be supplied on request.

 

 

7.4       All cheques should be made payable to “HMCS”.

 

 

7.5       Any underpayment of fees shall result in the Centre User being asked to submit a further cheque within 3 working days.  In cases of substantial underpayment the CPC Manager may decline to issue the claims until the balance of fees has been supplied.

 

 

7.6       Where no fee deposit account is maintained by a Centre User at the CPC any overpayment or refund due to rejected requests shall be refunded by the CPC by payable order as soon as the input data has been rejected.
