Types of applications
Under the State Administration Tribunal Act 2004, SAT has both ‘review’ and ‘original’ jurisdiction.
An application under SAT’s review jurisdiction is where a person applies to SAT under an enabling law for the review of a decision of a vocational regulation body or public official (including a local government official) that affects them.
An application under SAT’s original jurisdiction is where a person applies to SAT under an enabling law, such as the Guardianship and Administration Act 1990, to make a decision. In this case SAT is the primary decision-maker and is not reviewing an earlier decision by a separate decision maker.
The same application process applies to Review and Original matters. However, application forms, time limits and rules for serving documents may differ. More information is available on the eCourts Portal.
In you are unable to find the relevant application on eCourts Portal, then your issue may be outside of SAT’s scope.
