What if my appeal is unsuccessful?

An Appeals Officer's decision is normally final. However, an Appeals Officer may revise his or her decision if new evidence, new facts or any relevant change of circumstances come to light after a decision is made.

The Chief Appeals Officer may revise a decision of an Appeals Officer if it appears that a mistake was made in relation to the law or the facts.

In either case you should submit a written statement of the grounds on which a review is sought.

You may also seek a judicial review of the Appeals Officer's decision in the Courts, but only on a point of law.
