Document filing in Supreme Court Commercial List matters

Practitioners are advised that documents in Supreme Court Commercial List matters are to be filed both electronically using the Objective Connect platform and in hard copy in the Registry, unless relieved from the obligation to do so by a Court Order.

The requirement to file an electronic copy as well as a hard copy does not apply to the filing by Mediators of Mediation Certificates. Mediators need only file a hard copy of the certificate.

Use of Objective Connect platform will make the case management process much more efficient for the Court, facilitate trials being conducted as eTrials, and thereby save parties time and costs. Read more>

The introduction of Objective Connect responded to representations from the profession that the 2016 Commercial List Practice Direction requirement for a USB to be filed in the Registry (in addition to hard copy documents) was inconvenient. Objective Connect replaces the less convenient USB process.
