There will be a production centre for the issuance of application forms and other related matters. and that the relevant practice guide contains provisions relating to its use and any amendments or non-application of the CPP. In addition, the CCAC cannot be used to make claims under Part 8 of the CPP. CCBC users can query the SDT API to request updates on the status of their cases.

It handles administration and online claims, but there are no physical hearings at the centre. They send letters to report cases and claims.

A court official or district judge will decide on an appropriate payment rate based on the information you included in your N9A list and the payment rate the creditor communicated to the court.
