Considering that more and more court documents, including court rulings, are signed with a secure electronic signature, the Supreme Court has established the procedure for sending court rulings to the parties to proceedings.

If senators have signed the ruling with a secure electronic signature and a participant to proceedings has agreed to use electronic mail for communication with the court, the original of the ruling shall be sent electronically to the addressee. A copy of the ruling shall not be created.

If a ruling is signed with a secure electronic signature, but a party has not agreed to use electronic mail for communication with the court, a paper copy of the ruling shall be prepared and sent to the participant.

If a ruling is prepared on paper and signed by hand, a copy of the ruling shall be prepared and sent to the parties.

This procedure is specified in the internal regulatory enactment of the court “Procedure for Circulation of Supreme Court Cases and Documents Related to the Proceedings”.
