NCRS - Documentation

National Creditor Registration Service (NCRS) documents are provided here for your review. If you do not want to generate pre-filled agreement forms, you can download blank forms here.

Overviews of the NCRS and Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN) services are also presented here to help you determine which service may better suit your needs.

What is the NCRS?

Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 342(f) and Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(g), the NCRS is a free service that permits a creditor to specify a preferred mailing address to be used by all the bankruptcy courts or by particular bankruptcy courts for providing notices.

Notices sent from all bankruptcy courts, or by the individual bankruptcy court(s) specified, will be redirected to the preferred mailing address for cases filed under all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, effective within 30 days upon receipt.

When you fill in the NCRS registration agreements you must list the name(s) and address(s) and name synonyms (spelling variations of the name) commonly used in debtor filings where you are identified as a creditor. Software will attempt to match the names and addresses provided by you to the name and address included in the mailing list. In most cases, the addresses in the courts mailing list are provided by the debtor. If a match is made, the notice will be redirected to the preferred name and address specified by you. If the recipient name and address in the courts mailing list do not match any combination of names and addresses you provided, the BNC will mail the notice to the address provided in the mailing list.

What is EBN?

The Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing (EBN) program allows court notices to be transmitted electronically to notice recipients, delivering them faster and more conveniently than mailed paper notices. In deciding which service is best for your office, you may want to consider the significant advantages of using the EBN service instead.

While the NCRS allows you to specify a single specific USPS mailing address to which all bankruptcy notices should be mailed, EBN allows you to eliminate paper notices completely by redirecting the transmission of notices to a single electronic address.

EBN allows you to choose to receive bankruptcy notice data in one of three ways:

Internet E-Mail - For recipients who want the speed and convenience of receiving bankruptcy notices on-line.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) - For high-volume notice recipients who want to automatically process bankruptcy notice data using computer database to computer database transfers.

For recipients who don't want to set up an Internet E-Mail account, but want to eliminate mail pieces, there is also a fax notice service available.

When you sign up for EBN, you must list your name(s) and address(s) and name synonyms (spelling variations of your name) commonly used in debtor filings where you are identified as a creditor. Software will attempt to match the names and addresses provided by you to the name and address included in the mailing list. In most cases, the addresses in the courts mailing list are provided by the debtor. If a match is made, the notice will be transmitted to your electronic address. If the recipient name and address in the courts mailing list do not match any combination of names and addresses provided by you, the BNC will mail the notice to the address provided in the mailing list.
