The Department of Justice is seeking feedback on whether the policy objectives of the Act remain valid, and whether the Act is achieving its purpose.
In January 2014, the NSW Government consolidated 22 tribunals into one new body – the
NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal, or NCAT.
NCAT has broad powers to deal with a wide range of civil disputes, including tenancy and strata, administrative review of government decisions, discrimination, guardianship, and professional disciplinary matters.
The Department of Justice is conducting a review to find out how well NCAT is working, and to look at reforms that could strengthen access to justice for people in NSW.
