Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal President Justice Kerri Mellifont today issued QCAT Practice Direction No.9 of 2022 – Applications for review of decisions made by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission.
The practice direction explains the pre-hearing process, including:
- providing information to assist the understanding of the process by the litigants;
- promote matters being dealt with in a more efficient way, while retaining fairness and justice;
- ensuring all necessary interlocutory applications, for example, joinder or extension of time applications, are filed and dealt with, early in the proceedings;
- facilitate the hearing by the provision of a Hearing Book containing all relevant material upon which each party intends to rely.
