Submissions on the proposed VCAT Fee Regulations - Feb 2013

The Commission made a brief submission to the Department of Justice regarding the regulatory impact statement and proposed Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (Fee) Regulations 2013. The Commission welcomed the decision not to introduce commencement, hearing and mediation fees for the Anti-Discrimination List at VCAT (now called the Human Rights List). However, the Commission sought clarification on whether the "complex cases" hearing fee was intended to apply to the anti-discrimination list, and submitted that it should not apply. The regulations came into effect on 1 June 2013 and were amended to clarify that complex cases fees only apply to proceedings where a commencement or transfer fee was payable. This means that the Human Rights List at VCAT remains fee-free.
