Amsterdam, 25 March 2020

The Dutch Government has ordered measures to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, the courthouses, including the Palace of Justice where the NCC District Court and NCC Court of Appeal are located, are closed. Exceptions apply in urgent cases.

General guidance

To limit the impact of the current circumstances, the following general guidance will apply until further notice, subject to the court’s directions on a case-by-case basis:

  • There will be no hearings in the courthouse, except where this is strictly necessary in extraordinary circumstances;
  • Wherever possible and appropriate, hearings will be held electronically, using conference call or videoconferencing equipment;
  • It is possible, as always, to initiate a new case in eNCC (the electronic portal), and to submit documents and exhibits;
  • NCC staff is available to provide further guidance and answer any questions you may have.
