The Certificated Enforcement Agent (Bailiff) Register

This register holds details of all enforcement agents (previously called bailiffs) who hold a certificate, granted by a judge at the county court, which allows them carry out enforcement action by way of taking control of goods and, if necessary, selling these to recover a debt. It also contains the details of all individuals who have applied to hold or renew such a certificate. You can search by an enforcement agent's or applicant's name [.....etc.......]

Only "fit and proper" individuals should hold these certificates. If you know of serious conduct issues which would mean that an existing enforcement agent, or an applicant for a certificate, is not a "fit and proper" person, you can use this register to find out which court you should alert to these issues. If you are concerned about a person applying for a new certificate or a renewed certificate, the register also contains the date of the hearing where the judge will consider the application. By addressing your concerns to the court before this date, the judge will be able to consider these as part of the application.
