High Court Rules 2016

2.11 Review of Registrar’s decision


An affected party to a proceeding or an intended proceeding may apply to a Judge by interlocutory application for a review of any of the following:


a Registrar’s exercise of jurisdiction:


a Registrar’s refusal to file a document tendered for filing:


a Registrar’s refusal to perform a duty placed on him or her under these rules.


The Judge may, on review, make any orders he or she thinks just.


It is not necessary to apply for an order for an extraordinary remedy under Part 30 or to make an application for review under the Judicial Review Procedure Act 2016 when seeking a review under subclause (1)(b) or (c).


Notice of an application for review must be filed,—


if it is made by a party who was present or represented when the decision or refusal of the Registrar was given, within 5 working days of the decision or refusal; or


if it is made by a party who was not present or represented, within 5 working days after the receipt by the party of notice of the decision or refusal.


An application for review under this rule is not a stay of proceeding or a step in the proceeding, unless a Judge, or a Registrar acting under rule 2.5, so directs.
