Regulated Marketing: Judicial Reviews of Appeal and Supervisory Decisions
All BCFIRB appeal and supervisory related decisions made under the Natural Products Marketing (BC) Act are subject to judicial review.
To start a judicial review of a BCFIRB appeal decision you must file a petition with the B.C. Supreme Court within sixty (60) days of a BCFIRB panel decision.
A petition cannot simply challenge a BCFIRB decision as being wrong.
A petition must allege that BCFIRB:
- Made a patently unreasonable finding of fact or law or exercise of discretion,
- Acted in a procedurally unfair manner, or
- Made an incorrect jurisdictional decision.
If you wish to appeal a decision of the B.C. Supreme Court, you can appeal to the Court of Appeal upon obtaining leave (permission from a justice of the Court of Appeal) to do so.
