The update scheduled for Thursday 2nd April has been successfully deployed


To all users

As a result of this update all users will only be able to log into CCDCS using their primary email address or User Name. If you previously used to log in using a secondary email address on your CCDCS account you must start using either your primary email address or User Name from now on. Please bear this information in mind if you have your login details saved on your browser and update your saved details if they are not set to use your primary email address or User Name. User Names are set by account holders when their accounts are created but if you are unsure of what username you have set then you can see this information by clicking on Account Details after logging in.

Please Note a primary email address can only be a Justice, CPS, eJudiciary or CJSM email address.


To all HMCTS and Probation users

All HMCTS and Probation users will have their primary email address updated to their email address. You will not need to do anything on your account after this change has been made but if you use your primary email address to log into your account, from now on you will need to be aware of this update and use your updated email address to login.
