Welcome to the Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal website.

The Tribunal was established in 1 July 2011 under the Alcohol Reform (Prevention of Alcohol-related Crime and Substance Misuse) Act 2011.

The Tribunal has three main roles:

  • reviewing police-issued Banning Alcohol and Treatment (BAT) notices;
  • receiving completed Alcohol Intervention Certificates, which may lead to a reduction of the length of a ban imposed by a BAT notice; and
  • making orders for people assessed as misusing a substance, including orders to undertake treatment and rehabilitation, Banning Alcohol and Drugs and Treatment (BADT) orders.
