Tribunal procedure during the pandemic
The FTT is conducting no further face to face hearings or mediations until further notice.
Any hearings or mediations that they do convene will be carried out remotely for example, using Skype or by telephone. Alternatively, they will make determinations on consideration of documents alone.
All new applications must be lodged by email. See here.
New directions have been made in respect of inspections. They came into effect on 1 July. There will still be no internal inspections but the Tribunal will have a discretion in relation to outside inspections in certain circumstances. For full details click on the Practice Direction.
