NCAT commenced operation on 1 January 2014 consolidating the work of 22 former tribunals into a single point of access for specialist tribunal services in NSW.
The law that establishes NCAT and governs its operations is the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013.
NCAT provides a simple, quick, and effective process for resolving disputes and reviewing administrative action, including:
The types of cases dealt with by NCAT are broad and diverse. These range from tenancy issues and building works, to decisions on guardianship and administrative review of government decisions.
NCAT's broad and diverse jurisdiction and case types are generally managed through its Divisions.
NCAT's Appeal Panel provides a timely and cost-effective mechanism to enable prompt reviews of most Tribunal decisions.
