CCJ accepted into the International Consortium for Court Excellence


(Jamaica Observer) – The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has become the first court in the region to be accepted into the prestigious International Consortium for Court Excellence (ICCE).

The ICCE is an international network of courts and other organisations with expertise in court and judicial administration, dedicated to ensuring high-quality service delivery.

Just a few months shy of its 17th anniversary in April 2022, the CCJ has joined the ranks of other long-established organisations such as the Supreme Court of Singapore and the National Centre for States Courts of the United States that also belong to the ICCE.

To be accepted into the ICCE, organisations must demonstrate a commitment to excellence using an International Framework for Court Excellence (IFCE), a quality management system designed to help courts consistently improve their performance in seven core areas. These include court management and leadership, court policies, court proceedings, public trust and confidence, user satisfaction, court resources and affordable and accessible court services.

The IFCE was first introduced to the CCJ by its former President Sir Dennis Byron in 2016. Following an objective self-assessment undertaken by the court, several projects were subsequently initiated to address limitations identified from the assessment.
