The CBCA accepts filings submitted by electronic mail (e-mail), excluding Appeal Files submitted pursuant to Rule 4 of the Board's Rules of Procedure. A filing may be made by e-mailing it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any documents attached to an e-mail message must be in PDF format and may not exceed 18 MB total. Any e-mail message, together with its attachments, that exceeds 18 MB will not be delivered to the Office of the Clerk and therefore will not be considered filed with the Board. Attached documents that are not in PDF format will not be accepted; they will be deleted upon receipt.
The Board's normal business hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time, on every day except Saturdays, Sundays and Federal holidays. All e-mail filings received by 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time, on a day the Board is open for business will be considered to be filed on that day. E-mail filings received after that time will be considered to be filed on the next business day. All e-mail filings received and accepted by the Board will be acknowledged by e-mail message from the Office of the Clerk. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail message from the Office of the Clerk, then your documents have not been filed.
Note: PDF documents containing viruses will be blocked by the Board's e-mail system. All PDF documents should be scanned for viruses before they are sent to the Board to ensure that the e-mail filing is not discarded and the filing timely made.
Any questions about e-mail filings should be addressed to the Clerk by telephone at (202) 606-8800.
