As a controlled response to Covid-19 the Tribunals Hearing Centre has adjusted operational practices and taken steps to minimise any risk to tribunal users, staff and judicial office holders alike.  Its normal business activity is fully supported by arrangements that facilitate hearings on the papers and via a combination of remote and hybrid hearings using audio and video technology.  In addition, a limited number of physical hearings are also taking place in strict compliance with NICTS risk management protocols and the Public Health Agency guidance.  Any changes to scheduled individual hearings will be communicated directly to those affected, usually by email and/or phone.

It would be helpful if all correspondence to the office could be delivered, as far as is practicable, electronically in order for the secretariat to deal with correspondence as efficiently as possible at the current time.  For all matters in relation to the Review Tribunal, please e-mail For matters relating to all other tribunals please e-mail

Your continued co-operation and patience is appreciated in the exceptional circumstances.

This information page will be updated with any further developments.
