Complaints

You can make a complaint to NCAT about: 

  • the conduct of a Tribunal Member or Registry staff
  • NCAT's services or processes

NCAT cannot respond to complaints about changing a decision or removing a Tribunal Member.

Making a complaint​​

Step 1: Contact the NCAT Registry to discuss your problem.

Step 2: If not resolved, ask for your issue to be referred to a Deputy Registrar for informal review and response.

Step 3: If your issue still cannot be resolved directly with the Registry, complete the NCAT Complaint Form [PDF 63kB].​ 

NCAT will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days, and aims to respond within 21-28 working days.

Note:  Do not complete the complaints form online within your browser as data will not save. Save the PDF-fillable form to your computer and then open using Adobe Acrobat Reader

Complaints about a decision​​

Making a complaint cannot change a Tribunal decision. 

If you want to change the decision in your matter, seek legal advice about any rights of set asidereview or appeal you may have.

Removing a Tribunal Member

Making a complaint cannot change or 'remove' a Tribunal Member from hearing your case. 

You must ask the Member in person at the hearing to remove or disqualify themselves from hearing your case.
