Reconsideration process – Redress Scotland

25. After the period for the relevant person to make representations has ended, the panel will consider all available information to determine if the original determination was affected by error. The panel must determine whether the original decision was affected by error, and, if it was so affected, redetermine it on the basis of how it would have been decided had the error not been made.

26. The reconsideration will be determined on behalf of Redress Scotland by a panel of at least two members of Redress Scotland who are appointed by the chairing member.

27. Upon Redress Scotland reaching its determination, Redress Scotland must inform Scottish Ministers who must, as soon as reasonably practicable, notify the relevant person of its decision in writing and provide a brief account of the reasons why the determination has been reached.
