What is SDT?
SDT is an acronym for Secure Data Transfer and this is the method that the County Court Bulk Centre are moving towards for submissions of County Court Claims, Judgments, Warrants, Paid cases, Discontinued cases, Withdrawn cases and cases which have been written off.
This means that rather than submitting your requests using the current method of secure email (CJSM) the requests will be sent using a file format of XML via a portal called SDT.
SDT will process the request and pass the details through to the CCBC case management system and MCOL.
Why is SDT happening?
• Part of a wider Government digital initiative.
• It will be a secure web service.
• More creative and efficient use of on-line and bulk systems.
• Increased access with 24/7 availability.
• It will provide a service which is easier and more convenient for customers to use.
• It also offers additional functionality such as the ability to view defences on-line using MCOL .
• Payment by direct debit for Court fees.
There are a number of SDT steps that customers need to be adhered to prior to GO-LIVE and these are detailed below;
1. Customer agrees a cutover date with the SDT project.
2. The customer must then:
• Register with the Government Gateway
• Enrol their organisation as an MCOL customer
• Request a direct debit facility in MCOL – this needs to be in place before live use of SDT
• Notify the SDT project of their MCOL customer number and an email address to be used for the system security certificate set up process.
3. The SDT project will notify the customer of their SDT Customer ID and the 2 alphanumeric characters allocated to the customer as their unique claim number identifier.
4. The customer will receive an email (to the email address provided in step 2) inviting them to request a system security certificate for use with the commissioning application.
5. The customer responds to the email and requests the certificate.
6. The customer receives a further email which includes the certificate and installs it on their system. They notify the SDT project that they have done this.
7. The SDT project notifies the customer that they can start commissioning trials.
8. Commissioning trials are done by the customer.
9. The customer informs the SDT project that their trials are complete and they want to move into live operation from an agreed date and time.
10. The customer will receive an email (to the email address provided in step 2) inviting them to request a system security certificate for use with the live application. (If the customer wants to use a different email address then they should inform the SDT project of the new address at step 9.)
11. The customer responds to the email and requests the certificate.
12. The customer receives a further email which includes the certificate and installs it on their system. They notify the SDT project that they have done this.
13. At the agreed date and time, the SDT project will:
A. Run the data population process for the customer
B. Complete final set up tasks to allow live use of the SDT service
C. Notify the customer that everything is ready for live use of SDT.
14. Access to secure email for bulk claims revoked
