Independent review of SACAT

The South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) has been in operation for two years, and an independent review is being undertaken to assess whether its performance and services have met expectations and to suggest improvements.

The state government has appointed retired Supreme Court Justice the Hon David Bleby QC to conduct the review.

An online survey, asking people to share their experience with the tribunal, was open on the yourSAy website until 30 June 2017.

The South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT) is a state tribunal that helps people in South Australia to resolve issues within specific areas of law, either through agreement at a conference or mediation, or through a decision of the Tribunal at hearing. SACAT also conducts reviews of some Government decisions.  It operates across the state of South Australia and is a key part of the state justice system. 

SACAT has taken on the role of a number of former tribunals, panels and boards. SACAT will continue to take on additional areas of operation (within administrative and civil law) over coming years.

SACAT strives to be accessible and responsive to user needs, and deals with cases in a large range of areas (or jurisdictions).
