Appeal procedure

Appeals Period

The period for bringing an appeal is six weeks. This period commences on the day following the day on which the decision was made public. Any Executive Board's decision on the objection you wish to appeal is mailed to your home address by regular or registered letter. This means that the appeals period commences on the date following the date of dispatch. The date stated in the letterhead is deemed to be the date of dispatch.

Appeals periods may never end on Saturdays, Sundays or recognized public holidays. Should the final date fall on any of these days, the period is extended to run up to and including the next regular working day.

Appeals are to have been received before the period lapses. In case an appeal be dispatched by letter, submission is deemed to have been in time if the letter was posted no later than on the last day of the period, provided it has been received by the court no more than a week following the end date of the period. The person bringing the appeal is to be able to prove it was dispatched in time. The date of postmark constitutes such proof.

The above conditions are covered by Sections 6:7, 6:8 and 6:9 of the General Administrative Law Act.
