Reconsidered Decisions

On receipt of the internal review decision, the applicant may apply to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (the Tribunal) for a review of the internal review decision.

Reconsidered decisions are a recognised part of the Tribunal’s review jurisdiction.  At any time prior to the Tribunal making a final determination of a review application, the Tribunal may invite the decision maker (the Commission) to reconsider its decision under s23 of the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2009. 

If the Commission is so invited, the Commission has 28 days to reconsider the internal review decision and may-

  • confirm the decision; or
  • amend the decision; or
  • set aside the decision and substitute a new decision. 

Those reconsidered decisions of the Commission, which have led to the Applicant withdrawing the review application, appear on this page.  See reconsidered decisions.
