What is the process for appealing a decision made by the Disciplinary Panel?
If you wish to appeal the decision of the Disciplinary Panel, you must lodge a notice of appeal addressed to the Secretary to the Appeal Board at BHA’s offices within seven days of the date of notification of the decision appealed against. The Notice of Appeal must state the following information:
- The specific decision being appealed;
- The grounds of any appeal and substantive injustice of allowing the original decision to stand; and
- The facts upon which the appeal is based.
The Notice of Appeal must be accompanied by a deposit of £800.
An Appeal Board hearing will be convened and reasonable notice will be given of the date, time and venue of the appeal.
