Notice: December 1, 2021 Change to Fed. R. Bank. P. 9036 That May Impact Noticing Method for Certain High Volume Bankruptcy Notice Recipients

Effective December 1, 2021, the Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts has designated any entity that receives 100 or more paper bankruptcy notices in a single calendar month as a high-volume paper notice recipient pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9036(b)(2)(B) (as amended effective December 1, 2021) (Rule 9036). The threshold number of paper notices that will cause a notice recipient to be designated as a high-volume paper notice recipient pursuant to Rule 9036 will be reviewed annually and may be adjusted once a year, effective on December 1st of each year. Once the threshold paper notice amount is reached, the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) will notify the notice recipient that it must register for Electronic Bankruptcy Noticing or that, if the recipient does not register within 45 days of the date of the notification, the BNC will establish an electronic address where the Director designates the recipient to receive its notices pursuant to Rule 9036.
