Electronic Audio Recording Project

Electronic Audio Recording Project

The Mental Health Review Tribunal (the Tribunal) has concluded phase one of its project in relation to electronic audio recording of hearings.

Based on the findings of the project report, the Tribunal has agreed in principle to proceed with audio recording of hearings. The next phase of the project will involve investigation of the most appropriate manner to implement electronic recording.  The Tribunal will need to ensure that that the implementation is managed in such a way that maximises the benefits and minimises the risks of harm identified in the project report.

The Tribunal would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey and/or provided a written submission.

Further details regarding the implementation of recording will be made available as appropriate.
