The Head of Governance shall contact the Selection Panel to inform them of the Appeal, provide them with a copy of the Notice of Appeal and request that the Selection Panel provide any additional information they wish the Appeal Panel to consider within 48 hours of receiving the Notice of Appeal
The Appeal Panel will ordinarily determine the appeal based on the written submissions of the Athlete and the Selection Panel without a hearing or the calling of witnesses or the giving of oral evidence. However the Appeal Panel will have the power to set its own processes and give directions including but not limited to, requesting further information, setting up a teleconference, determining if a hearing is required and if it is, establishing the date, time and place, and format to be followed in such a hearing.
The Appeal Panel shall be entitled to; a) Rescind the selection decision and confirm the selection of the Athlete in circumstances where it is clear that the grounds of the Appeal have been upheld. b) Confirm the selection decision and reject the Appeal. c) quash the selection decision and remit the matter back to the International Panel identifying the errors they have found in the conduct of the selection process and requesting that a new decision is made within one week (or an earlier date if that has been decided and communicated by the Head of Governance).
