We cannot respond to complaints about:

  • a decision or order made by a Tribunal Member
  • errors or mistakes in decisions, or other legal grounds
  • matters that are outside our responsibilities, such as government policy or legislation.

Complaints about a proceeding or a decision

We cannot address complaints about the outcome of a hearing or SACAT decisions, or whether you have the right to an administrative review, appeal or other form of legal redress.

If you believe a decision is wrong on a question of law - or the proceedings were not fair - you may be able to apply to have the decision reviewed within SACAT (called an internal review).

You can also contact the Judicial Conduct Commissioner.

The Commissioner is an independent statutory officer who receives and deals with complaints made about the conduct of serving judges, magistrates and other judicial officers including SACAT's President. (SACAT's senior and ordinary members are not judicial officers)
