What happens if someone is disruptive during a review hearing?

Disruptive behaviour is not tolerated. Everyone at the hearing is expected to be courteous and follow the reviewer's instructions. You should behave appropriately and not interrupt when someone else is speaking.

If someone behaves inappropriately, the reviewer can:

  • ask them to leave the room;
  • adjourn the hearing briefly if time permits to allow the person time to regain their composure, and
  • end the hearing and make their decision on the material that is already available. A security guard may also be present at the hearing.
