CICM and Court Enforcement Services call for change in enforcement 

The Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) has formed a new partnership agreement with Court Enforcement Services (CES), promoting a call for change in enforcement practice for lower value debt.

CES will work closely with the CICM to support the campaign to allow cases to be transferred to High Court Enforcement for debts under £600. The current system means debts below the threshold can only be enforced by county court bailiffs, but with the service being overwhelmed by a series of national lockdowns, work is being done to provide wider access to justice.


Sue Chapple, chief executive of the CICM, says the institute is pleased to be partnering with a company that puts professionalism and integrity at the heart of its work. She said: “With a wave of insolvencies expected over the coming months, it is more important than ever that the industry pursues a professional and ethical approach to collections and enforcement.”


Wayne Whitford, co-founder and director of CES, said: “I am proud to be a fellow of the CICM. I and so many other members of staff at CES have benefitted from CICM membership and training over the years.


“With learning and development such a key focus for us as a business, we are delighted to be in a position to provide the CICM and its members with information and resources relating to enforcement services.”
