This is the 12th in a series of newsletters which the Board has decided to produce to keep applicants informed from time to time as to the procedures it follows and other developments. The Board's 'Guide to Hearing Procedures' issued in April 2003 and the Board's annual report for 2004 issued to the Minister for Education and Science in April of this year. Earlier this month the Board issued the third edition of its Guide to the Redress Scheme which reflects changes in its practice and procedure occasioned by Part 4 of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (Amendment) Act 2005.
