Case Procedures

illustration case procedures


  • When we receive appeal cases from UDI, they are placed in a queue in the section working on those types of cases.

  • The cases that have been in the queue the longest will normally be considered first. Some cases will be given priority even if we have just received them. Which types of cases are prioritised depends, among other things, on guidelines issued by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

  • A case officer in the secretariat will be assigned to your case when it is first in line.

  • If you have any new information or documentation that can be important to your case, you must send it to us.

  • If we find that something is missing in the case, a case officer will write to you, your lawyer or your authorised representative.

  • Most appeal cases in UNE are decided by a board leader following case preparation by the secretariat. This means that a case officer writes a draft decision, which is then sent to a board leader. It is then up to the board leader to decide the case.

  • If there is doubt about matters that may be of decisive importance to the outcome, the case shall be decided at an appeals board hearing. A board leader will decide how the case is to be decided. If it is clear what the outcome will be, an appeals board hearing will not be held.  

  • If it is obvious what the outcome will be, the secretariat can decide the case. In such case, at least two case officers will consider the case.
