19 November 2021

The Common Platform will help make the criminal justice system more efficient, effective, timely, transparent and resilient for everyone. It is replacing a network of existing systems in both the Crown and Magistrates’ Courts that are coming to the end of their life and will no longer be fit for purpose in a modern court system. It is central to the wider HMCTS reform programme, and vital to bringing about improvements for collecting and managing data.
