The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has established an independent Appeals Tribunal service for its member bodies to meet the requirements of the Human Rights Act 1998. All members of the Construction Industry Council have the option to subscribe to the service but only subscribing members are able to use it.
Individual members of professional bodies may use the Tribunal for appeals against decisions regarding membership and decisions of the disciplinary body of their professional body. The Appeals Tribunal may be used in full, or in part, at the discretion of the subscribing member, subject to their own requirements. The Tribunal cannot be used in instances where the subscribing member’s disciplinary body has found that there is no case to answer.
There are three Tribunals scheduled to be held during 2013:
Tribunals are open to the public, on a first come, first served
Procedure to be followed at hearings of the tribunal
