Technical Manual  

The Technical Manual contains guidance on case administration and provides detailed background on relevant legislation and case law and on the more complex technical issues that may be encountered (excluding enforcement and investigation matters). The official receiver should exercise discretion when applying the guidance in the Technical Manual. Material deviation from the guidance, and the reason for the deviation, should be recorded on case file.

The information in the Technical Manual is amended and supplemented by Technical News Items (TNs) published on the intranet. Click here to find a list of all TNs published by Technical Section and ORBS.

The Technical Manual chapters are listed below. Subject matter has yet to be allocated to chapters marked ‘unavailable’.
