Section title: 
Appeal Rights


The decision of the tribunal may be reviewed by the original tribunal if, on the application of either party, it is satisfied that;

  1. the decision was based on an error of fact or law OR

  2. a party who did not attend had a good reason OR

  3. otherwise that the interests of justice require a review.

If applying to have the decision reviewed you must state the reasons for the request in full and deliver the request with reasons to the Secretary no later than one month after the original decision was issued.


Any appeal must be made to the Court of Session and can only be made where an error of law has been identified.  This would usually be where the tribunal has not correctly applied the law or has not adequately explained its decision.  Further information on your right to appeal is sent alongside the written tribunal decision.
