Appeals Update

First issued March 2020, updated May 2021

Applications for Appeal of decisions relating to Registration applications and Recognition applications and all documentation relating to the process is required to be submitted electronically until further notice 

This measure is required to support progression and timely processing and assessment of appeals during a time when office closure is a possibility as a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak.

Please note:

  1. As we require documents be issued in soft rather than hard copy during this period of time, we continue to require the application form to be signed when sending in the soft copy of the application form
  2. If you have documents that you are preparing to submit in hard copy, please scan them and send in PDF format. 
  3. If you have recently posted documents that you have copies of, please send in scanned copies also to be sure we receive them and can progress your appeal without delay.

Documents should be sent to including your complaint reference number (if you have one already).

Important: Your appeal must be submitted within 30 days of communication of the relevant decision. In order to satisfy this 30 day requirement, you must within this timeframe submit your appeal form by email to and pay the appeal fee of €100. Any documentation which you may wish to rely on in support of your appeal, may be submitted at this stage or at a later date.

If you have any questions or require assistance in relation to the submission of appeals documentation, please contact
