Welcome to the Tribunal's Court Records database online.
This database provides access to all public court records from the first filing made at the Tribunal in 1994 through to today. With the Tribunal currently operating at capacity, many documents are added on a daily basis to the collection of more than 150,000.
The Tribunal is dedicated to ensuring judicial transparency and that its public court records are accessible.

This database consists of Public filings only. Confidential filings form no part of this database. Also, while every effort is made to ensure that the database is complete, certain types of documents are pending inclusion. Specifically, transcripts from numerous cases are in the process of being launched, as well as exhibits from several ongoing cases. It is intended for all missing materials to be included before the end of 2009.
