Stay a decision
To apply to stay a decision of the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission while they conduct an internal review, you need to lodge a Form 44 - Application to stay a decision (PDF, 470.9 KB).
From 12 December 2016 there will be a fee for an application for stay of an internal review decision. If payment of the filing fee would cause undue financial hardship an application can be made to the Principal Registrar using Form 49 to waive the fee .
In some circumstances the commission may consent to the stay. If this is the case, the application to stay a decision should be accompanied by an application for decision order by consent (PDF, 245.5 KB), signed and completed by all parties.
