Administrative Review in South Australia
Most of the States and Territories have established “super tribunals” for dealing with complaints about decisions made by government departments and government officials. South Australia’s super tribunal, called the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (the “Tribunal”), commenced operating on 30 March 2015. One of its main roles is reviewing decisions made by the government on their merits and deciding whether the decision made was the right decision. This is called “merits review”. Government decisions may also be reviewed by the South Australian Supreme Court to check whether the decision made was lawful. This is called “judicial review”.
