Is the Appeals Officer's decision final?

Print page

The Appeals Officer’s decision is normally final and conclusive. However it may be changed in the following circumstances:

  • in the light of new evidence coming to notice since the decision was made.
  • it may be appealed to the High Court but only on a point of law.
  • the Chief Appeals Officer may revise any decision where it appears that a mistake was made in relation to the law or the facts. In making a request for such a review, the appellant must state the reasons why they believe a mistake was made regarding the law or the facts.
