An order has been made and I want to know why

It will usually be apparent from the hearing why an order has been made.

The Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2020 enables any person who was aggrieved by a decision of the Tribunal to request a statement of reasons. Such a request must be in writing. A statement of reasons will explain the reasons why the Tribunal came to its decision.

The statement will contain:

  • a list of the evidence and information that the Tribunal used to make its decision
  • discussion about what occurred at the hearing
  • interpretation of how the legislation relates to the facts and evidence of the case
  • explanations about why orders were made or not made

You should make your request for a statement of reasons within 21 days of the date of the order of the Tribunal. The statement will then be delivered to you within 21 days.
