From 2 July 2018, all documents for Common Law, Commercial Court and Costs Court matters will be required to be electronically filed using the RedCrest electronic filing platform.
RedCrest is the Supreme Court of Victoria's electronic filing system currently used for judge-managed matters filed in the Commercial Court.
The CITEC platform previously used for electronic filing of Common Law, Costs Court and some Commercial Court matters will be inaccessible after 4pm on Friday 29 June 2018. It will continue to be accessible to obtain copies of previously filed documents.
Access to electronic filing in RedCrest for these matters will commence on Monday 2 July 2018.
Practitioners can use the Court's electronic filing and electronic case management system (www.redcrest.com.au (External link) ) to initiate new proceedings and file all documents for proceedings in the Common Law, Commercial Court and Costs Court divisions.
All new proceedings filed in this system will have a proceeding number which begins "S ECI". For more information, including the new user guide, visit the electronic filing and electronic case management system (www.redcrest.com.au (External link) ).
