These temporary regulations will now remain in force until 30 September 2021 (the date was extended from 31 January 2021).

The key changes in place until 30 September include:

  • Flexibility with panel hearings - when it's not safe to meet face-to-face (in line with government guidance), hearings can take place remotely by telephone or video conference, or through a paper-based appeal where all parties can make representations in writing

  • Amendments to deadlines - appellants must now be:

    • given at least 28 calendar days’ written notice of a deadline for lodging an appeal

    • given at least 14 calendar days’ written notice of an appeal hearing (although appellants can waive their right to this in writing)

    • sent a decision letter within 7 calendar days of the hearing (or in the case of written submissions only, within 7 calendar days of the appeal panel making a decision), wherever possible

  • Relaxation of rules around panel member numbers - if 1 of the 3 panel members withdraws (temporarily or permanently), the panel can continue with and conclude the appeal as a panel of 2
