Defence Agents

Pre-intermediate diet meeting (PIDM) booking

From 1 December 2020 there will be changes to the way that COPFS works with the defence to process summary cases.

The Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service have published more information on these changes in Practice Note 4 of 2020.

The Practice Note provides for a ‘Pre-intermediate Diet Meeting’ or ‘PIDM’ in all sheriff court summary business in which the accused is ordained or released on bail when intermediate and trial diets are fixed.

Defence agents are expected to submit a request for a PIDM via our new booking system which is accessed below. Please note that when booking the PIDM, the date selected must be the day fixed by the court.

Support and guidance

For information about using the booking system please read the PIDM booking app guidance (PDF) and the PIDM booking app FAQs (PDF). If you require this information in a different format for accessibility reasons please contact our IT team using the details below.

For queries about an existing booking contact the relevant COPFS office. You will find a contact email address for each office beside the booking links below.
