On the 12th January 2011 the Minister for Justice Equality and Law Reform signed Statutory Instrument No. 2 of 2011. The statutory instrument amends the current Rules of the Superior Courts by removing the requirement to file Examiner's Office documentation in the Central Office of the High Court in addition to the Examiner's Office itself.

From the 1st February 2011 all affidavits, notices of motion, notices to proceed, Examiner’s certificates and Examiner's orders should be filed in the Examiner’s Office only. There will be no requirement to file these documents or copies of these documents in the Central Office of the High Court.

The introduction of these new Rules will eliminate the need to attend in the Central Office of the High Court in respect of matters which lie within the remit of the Examiner’s Office. Such matters include court liquidations, mortgage suits (well charging proceedings), administration suits and any other matter remitted to the Examiner’s Office by the court.
