Part 7 Appeals (Sections 43-48)

Section 45 Appeal to appeal panel

  1. A person directly affected may appeal a decision of the Director referred to in section 43(1) by filing a notice of appeal, which must include reasons for requesting the appeal, within 30 days from when the person received notice of the decision and of the person’s right to appeal.

  2. The Minister may extend the time for appealing a decision, whether the request for extension is made before or after the time has expired, if the Minister is satisfied that there are apparent grounds for an appeal and that there are reasonable grounds for granting the extension.

  3. For the purpose of subsection (1), a person is deemed to have received notice of the Director’s decision and of the person’s right to appeal,

    1. if it was sent by registered mail or courier, on the day it was delivered to that person’s last address known to the Director,

    2. if it was sent by ordinary mail, on the 7th day after it was mailed to that person’s last address known to the Director, or

    3. if it was sent by fax or other electronic means, on the day it was transmitted to that person’s last electronic address known to the Director,

    unless the person satisfies the appeal panel that the person did not receive the notice or that the person received the notice later than when it is deemed to have been received.
