Welcome

The Office of the Judicial Conduct Commissioner was established in August 2005 to deal with complaints about the conduct of Judges.

The purpose of the Judicial Conduct Commissioner is to:
 enhance public confidence in, and
 protect the impartiality and integrity of the judicial system.

Complaints may be made against Judges of the various Courts set out in Section 5 of the Judicial Conduct Commissioner and Judicial Conduct Panel Act 2004, including temporary, associate, and acting Judges but not retired or former Judges.

However, the Judicial Conduct Commissioner cannot challenge the legality or correctness of a Judge’s decision in relation to any legal proceedings.

The present Commissioner is Sir David Gascoigne.
