Yes some actions cease to be reviewable, such as (Regulation 5.23):
- you applied outside of the statutory time limits and there are no exceptional circumstances explaining why you did not make an application within the time limits (Regulation 5.23(4))
- your application is misconceived or lacking in substance
- your application is frivolous or vexatious
- the matter has previously been reviewed
- you have applied to have a promotion review committee (PRC) or an independent selection advisory committee (ISAC) decision reviewed
- you have or could have the action reviewed by an external review body which is considered more appropriate to review your concerns
For example: the Human Rights Commission, Privacy Commissioner, Commonwealth Ombudsman
- you do not have a sufficient personal interest in the matters you are concerned about
- review or further review is not otherwise justified in all the circumstances.
Some of these decisions are discretionary and we have a policy on how this discretion is exercised.
