Criminal Code Review Board - Policies And Procedures

Overview & Background | Membership | Hearing Schedules | Rules of Practice | Disposition

The procedure for disposition hearings of Review Boards is set out in Section 672.5 of the Criminal Code, and all Review Boards, including the NSCCRB, must follow the processes, procedures and requirements in the Code. The Criminal Code states in clause 672.5(2) that the hearing may be conducted in as informal a manner as is appropriate in the circumstances.

The Nova Scotia Review Board introduced new rules of practice in October 2013. Anyone appearing before the board must consult these new rules.
