The right to review and appeal of decisions

Any decision of the Board made by a decision maker at first instance can be reviewed and/or appealed.  This allows the applicant to have their application reconsidered by the decision maker in light of fresh information, or for the initial decision to be appealed to an appeal committee of the Board.

This Part deals with reviews and appeals of decisions other than refusals of legal services on financial eligibility grounds only. The review and appeal procedure in cases of refusal of legal services on financial eligibility grounds only can be found in Chapter 4 of the Administrative Procedures Handbook.

For reviews and appeals of refusals of legal services on financial eligibility grounds, see Chapter 4 of the Administrative Procedures Handbook
