In certain circumstances parties can appeal a QCAT decision. When appealing a QCAT decision the appeal process differs depending on whether the decision was:
- about the amount of costs awarded (cost amount)
- about whether to award costs or not rather than the amount of costs awarded
- about a minor civil dispute
- an interim decision
- a decision made by a judicial member
- any other decision made by a non-judicial member.
QCAT decisions that can’t be appealed
If QCAT’s Principal Registrar refuses or places conditions on an application the decision can be reviewed by a member of the tribunal. The decision of the tribunal is final and cannot be appealed further.
