When enacted, the Bills will abolish the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and replace it with the Administrative Review Tribunal. Among other things, the ART Act will provide mechanisms to enable the ART to identify, escalate and report upon systemic issues in administrative decision making, including referring them to a new Guidance and Appeals Panel or to the re-established Administrative Review Council.
