1. What you need to know

A closure order allows the Tribunal to close a hearing, or part of a hearing, to all or some members of the public or a particular person, including an active party.

The Tribunal may make a closure order only if the Tribunal is satisfied it is necessary to avoid serious harm or injustice to a person.

If the hearing, or part of the hearing, concerns health information about a person, 'serious harm to a person' includes 'significant health detriment to the person'.

An application for a closure order will be determined by the Tribunal at the hearing.
