Guidance Note on Applications for Special Measures

This Guidance Note has been prepared to ensure all applications for special measures at Tribunal hearings are dealt with consistently and efficiently and to maximise the quality of evidence given by all those who appear before the Tribunal.

The Tribunal is committed to ensuring all parties receive a fair trial (Article 6 European Convention on Human Rights).

Following the procedure set out in this guidance note when making an application for special measures will help to ensure that the Tribunal is able to facilitate the effective participation of all parties, including vulnerable witnesses, by adapting its normal hearing procedures where necessary.
