the independent appeals body

The Independent Appeals Body comprises a Chairman, His Honour Judge Derek Holden, and four lay members. All five are completely independent of icstis and it is their role to hear appeals by service providers in the following circumstances:

  • against adjudications made by icstis, following an oral hearing
  • against refusals by icstis to grant applications for permission to provide services in cases where permission from icstis is required
  • against the imposition of conditions as part of the permission granted to a service provider to operate a service.

For further information about the IAB, contact the Clerk to the Body at [email protected].

The procedures of the Independent Appeals Body can be found at the end of our Code of Practice.
