Tribunals Service

Tribunals office update - 22 June 2020


Welcome to the Tribunals Service. Tribunals are an important part of the justice system, delivering justice through the provision of an open, fair, impartial, efficient, timely and accessible service.

As a result of the Human Rights Act 2001 coming into effect on the Isle of Man on the 1st November 2006, the responsibility for the administration of a number of Tribunals was transferred to the General Registry. The transfer saw the creation of a new team given the title of the ‘Tribunals’ Centralised Administration’ by the Tribunals Regulations 2006, now replaced by the Tribunals Regulations 2010. The Regulations were made under the provisions of the Tribunals Act 2006, a copy of which can be accessed on the Isle of Man Government on-line legislation website at

The transfer of functions was a positive step forward in increasing public confidence in the integrity of the appeal process. By making the administration independent, persons appearing in front of a Tribunal can do so confident in the knowledge they will receive a fair hearing.

The Tribunals’ Centralised Administration is currently responsible for providing common administrative support to all of the Tribunals listed, although please note that not all of the Tribunals fall under the Tribunals Act 2006 (as amended).
