State Administrative Tribunal

The State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) is an independent body that makes and reviews a range of administrative decisions related to commercial and civil disputes, planning and development matters, vocational regulation and the appointment of guardians and administrators. SAT's approach is informal, flexible and transparent.

SAT is not a court and, therefore, strict rules of evidence do not apply. SAT encourages the resolution of disputes through mediation and allows parties to represent themselves or to be represented by a lawyer or person with relevant experience.

SAT holds hearings in public in most cases and provides reasons for all of its decisions and publishes most decisions on its website.

SAT's objectives are set out in the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004.

Its primary objectives  are:

  • To achieve the resolution of questions, complaints or disputes, and make or review decisions, fairly and according to the substantial merits of the case
  • To act as speedily and with as little formality and technicality as is practicable, and minimise the costs to parties and
  • To make appropriate use of the knowledge and experience of SAT members.
