Conduct of reviews

85 Conduct of reviews

(1) A review panel may, on an application made under section 83 or 84, review the determination of a costs assessor and may--
(a) affirm the costs assessor's determination, or
(b) set aside the costs assessor's determination and substitute the determination that, in its opinion, should have been made by the costs assessor.
(2) The review panel has, in relation to the application for review, all the functions of a costs assessor in relation to the assessment concerned and is to determine the application, subject to this Part and the costs assessment rules, in the manner that a costs assessor would be required to determine an application for costs assessment.
(3) Without limiting subsection (2), the review panel is not bound by the rules of evidence and may inform itself on any matter in the manner it thinks fit.
(4) If the costs assessors who constitute the review panel are unable to agree on a determination in relation to an application, the panel is to affirm the determination of the costs assessor.
