During the hearing of cases, a Court Reporter is also required to take a verbatim recording of the court proceedings. This then leads to a production of a transcript or record of proceedings.
Any party to the proceedings is entitled to request for a copy of the record of proceedings.
A litigant/party can make a formal request in writing to the Registrar requesting for the production of the record of proceedings or transcript. Such a request/letter should indicate case number and full citation of the parties.
To get a typed transcript you will need to file an application (letter) requesting the transcript and file same with the Court Registry.
Production of a record of proceedings or transcript is dependent upon the length of a trial. This can vary from one (1) month to six (6) months.
A litigant or party is required to pay P2.00 per page for the production of a typed transcript.
For more information refer to the Rules of Court or contact the Registrar of the Industrial Court.
