Your matter is about

Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division

NCAT's Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division deals with the following matter types.

NCAT can review decisions by government agencies about licences for possessing and using firearms. You should have received a letter from the firearms registry telling you of your right to have the decision reviewed by the NCAT. Learn more about firearm licensing matters.

You cannot lodge a complaint directly to NCAT. If you believe that someone has breached the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977, you must first complain to the Anti-Discrimination Board. Learn more about discrimination matters.
