Date uploaded:
23 May 2014

Important amendments to the VCAT Act are considered, including that the Tribunal may make orders in relation to the reimbursement of fees, separate from its power to award costs; and that responsible authorities may be invited to reconsider a decision. The main purpose of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal Amendment Act 2014 is to enhance the powers and efficiency of the Tribunal and enact a new regime for expert witnesses and expert evidence (s1).
