Although proceedings in the SCCO are recorded, no transcripts of the recordings are made unless and until a party applies for a transcript and pays the fee. Application must be made by letter or telephone call to the Courts Recording and Transcriptions Unit (CRATU) at the RCJ, who will release the tapes only to one of the official tape transcribers (a list of whom is available from CRATU). The amount of the fee payable for transcription will depend on the nature and length of the hearing. The recording of telephone hearings is undertaken by the company providing the conference (e.g. BT or Legal Connect) and not by CRATU.
