Service of documents in the ECT can be done by any of the following modes:
Personal Delivery||Delivering the document personally to the other party |
Registered post||Sending the documents by registered post to the party's last known residential address, registered address or address of that person's principal place of business as notified to ACRA, in an envelope addressed to the person|
Others||By any means (including by facsimile transmission or electronic mail) as directed by the ECT|
Submitting through CJTS||Submitting the document through CJTS, if the other party is a party to proceedings, and has been notified by the Registrar of the right to access the CJTS to view the document served.|
After service of the document, parties must file a declaration of service (DOS) with proof of such service (e.g. Singpost registered post slip). A DOS must be filed before the first case management conference (CMC). File the DOS in the CJTS by clicking on “Online Applications”, then “ECT”, and choosing the e-service “Declaration of Service”.
For cases filed before 7 January 2019 (manually)
You may file a DOS through the Central Registry (State Courts, Level 1). The DOS form may be downloaded here.
