The Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber) hears onward appeals on points of law from the First-tier Chambers, as well as onward appeals from MHRT Wales, SENT Wales, PAT (Scotland), and in some instances PAT (Northern Ireland).
The Upper Tribunal was created as a court of record with jurisdiction throughout the United Kingdom. It was established by Parliament under the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. Its main functions are:
• To take over hearing appeals to the courts, the Social Security and Child Support Commissioners, and similar bodies from the decisions of local tribunals;
• To take over some of the supervisory powers of the Courts to deal with the actions of tribunals and of the government departments and other public authorities whose decisions may be appealed to tribunals; and
• To deal with enforcement of decisions, directions and orders made by tribunals.
