WARNING:Changes to CCDCS – Access and Usage will be limited over the weekend from 6pm Friday 15 to 7am Monday 18th December.


Between 6pm on Friday 15th Dec and 7am on Monday 18th Dec CCDCS is being upgraded. While the upgrade is taking place please do not use the system. You will be able to login and access cases BUT there is a risk that any changes you make may be lost. If you need to work on a case during this period you may wish to download the bundle and work offline and instructions on how to do that can be found below:



The upgrade will result in some minor changes to the system. These changes are limited to the View Case List and Case Details pages and include the addition of a new Defendant Record page. If you are a Judicial, Prosecution, Probation or Defence user these changes should not affect the way in which you use DCS.  If you are an HMCTS user this will change some of the case setup and management procedures you follow, details of which will be provided before the changes on 18th Dec.


This is the first step in a series of upgrades to change the way in which CCDCS handles multi-defendant cases.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused while this necessary and important work is undertaken.
