Complaints about a proceeding or a decision
We cannot address complaints about the outcome of a hearing or SACAT decisions, or where you have the right to an administrative review or appeal or other form of legal redress.
If you believe that a decision is wrong on a question of law or if you believe the proceedings were not fair you may be able to apply to have the decision reviewed within SACAT (called an internal review).
The Judicial Conduct Commissioner (the Commissioner) is an independent statutory officer appointed under the Judicial Conduct Commissioner Act 2015 (JCC Act). The Commissioner receives and deals with complaints made about the conduct of serving judges, magistrates and other judicial officers which includes complaints about the conduct of SACAT's President. SACAT's senior and ordinary members are not judicial officers and are not subject to the JCC Act. To find out more about the Judicial Conduct Commissioner and the process for making complaints about the conduct of judicial officers see www.jcc.sa.gov.au.

We review our complaints policy and procedures on a regular basis and welcome feedback and suggestions for improvement. If you have something to add please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
