Is there an Appeal Process for an Administrative Penalty?
ESA’s Administrative Penalty framework comes into force on April 1, 2023.
Yes. If a person subject to am Administrative Penalty believes a Director’s decision to issue an Administrative Penalty is incorrect, they may appeal to the Review Panel of the Electrical Safety Authority. To do so, the party must submit a Notice of Appeal to the review panel within 15 days of receiving a penalty order.
The review panel will conduct a hearing and will make a final decision regarding the Administrative Penalty.
