ERB's Case Numbering System

Cases are numbered in the following manner:

  • The first two letters designate the type of the case.
  • The following three-digit number is chronological, based on the number of cases filed in a calendar year.
  • The last two-digit number designates the year the case was filed.

Effective January 1, 2017, ERB simplified the numbering system for representation cases by reducing the number of different case types. Table 1 lists the current case types and designations.  Table 2 lists the former case types and designations.
