Welcome

The State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) in Western Australia deals with a broad range of administrative, commercial and personal matters. These matters span human rights, vocational regulation, commercial and civil disputes, and development and resources issues.

The Tribunal is the primary place for the review of decisions made by Government agencies, public officials and local governments. It also makes a wide variety of original decisions.

Before completing an application under the Guardianship & Administration Act 1990 the following may assist in determining if you can or need to bring an application before the Tribunal.

SAT eLodgment

The Tribunal's electronic case management system (ECMS) is available through the eLodgement system on the eCourts Portal. The eCourts Portal can be used for managing proceedings in the Tribunal and all Western Australian Courts, and it is available for use by the legal profession, government agencies and self-represented litigants.

Benefits of eLodgment include the ability to lodge applications and forms electronically, and to access documents and orders anytime.

Proceedings in the Tribunal’s jurisdiction are commenced by filing originating documents. All Tribunal originating documents are available to be lodged via the Portal. Once completed, you will receive a matter number for your reference and you will be able to file other (non-originating) documents using the ECMS. You can lodge:

  • Tribunal forms, which can be obtained from the Tribunal's website, completed and submitted; or
  • other documents, in which case you should select the appropriate document name from the options in the Portal, and then upload the complete document.

Filing fees are paid online and all court orders and listings can be accessed electronically by parties to the proceedings.

For more information see eLodgement.

Guardianship and Administration
