Proposal to change the time limits for judicial review

Consultation opened on 22 June 2015. Closing date 14 September 2015.


Proceedings for judicial review currently must be brought ‘promptly’ and in any event within three months from the date of the decision which is to be reviewed


Consultation description

The Department proposes that there should be no requirement to bring judicial review proceedings promptly in any case and that all proceedings should, rather, be required to be brought within three months of the date of the reviewed decision.

It considers that this change will “provide a greater degree of certainty to the judicial review process and ensure continued compliance with obligations arising from EU law”.
