What is the NCRS?

The National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) is a free service provided by the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts to give creditors options to specify a preferred mailing address.

The NCRS database includes addresses registered by notice recipients, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 342(f) and Rule 2002(g)(4). A creditor may specify a preferred mailing address to be used by all the bankruptcy courts or by particular bankruptcy courts for providing notices.

In lieu of registering a preferred mailing address, an entity may register to receive notices electronically through the Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN) program. The EBN program supports Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9036, which allows court notices to be transmitted electronically to notice recipients, delivering them faster and more conveniently than mailed paper notices.

You might consider the benefits that EBN can offer your organization over mailed paper notices. More info on NCRS and EBN»
