Electronic filing in the TCC - procedures
The Technology and Construction Court of the High Court in London has started using the new CE-File electronic court file. Some data stored on the old IT system will be transferred to CE-File.
The TCC at the Rolls Building, 7 Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane, deals with all High Court. At least three High Court judges sit regularly at the Rolls Building.
Mr Justice Edwards-Stuart is the judge in charge of the TCC and sits in London. He and the other London TCC judges are available to manage and try TCC cases either in London or at any of the regional court centres mentioned below.
The Central London Civil Justice Centre deals with all county court TCC cases in London.
The court centres outside London at which the TCC principally operates are:
At each of these court centres both High Court and county court TCC cases may be issued and tried. There are full time TCC judges at Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. At the other court centres TCC judges are available but they devote a substantial amount of their judicial time to non-TCC work. Judges authorised to deal with TCC business are also available at Mold, Sheffield and Winchester. However, County Court claims cannot be issued at those court centres.
