Current Changes

Criminal Proceedings

The Federal Court (Criminal Proceedings) Rules 2016 (Cth) (Criminal Proceedings Rules) commenced on 10 November 2016, replacing the Federal Court (Criminal Proceedings) (Interim) Rules 2016 (Cth) (Interim Rules). The Interim Rules continued to apply for 6 months on a transitional basis for prosecutions commenced before 10 November 2016.

Forms for use in proceedings under the Criminal Proceedings Rules were approved from 10 November 2016 but, until now, were not supported by eLodgment.  Changes to correct this were introduced over the weekend of 16 and 17 December 2017.  These forms can now be downloaded and used for proceedings in the Federal Crime and Related Proceedings NPA.

Auto-Acceptance Changes

The expected changes to eLodgment were not introduced over the weekend of 7 & 8 October due to a technical issue. Our IT team is working with the vendor to isolate the issue.  We will follow up with more communication around the expected timeframe of when this issue will be fixed.

Bankruptcy Creditors Petitions and Corporations Winding Up Applications will continue to be reviewed and processed by registry staff until this issue is resolved.

Thank you for your patience.
