Independent Review of Determinations

The IRM can offer an independent review panel process where your agency is proposing not to approve you as a foster carer or adopter, or to terminate or change your terms of approval.

It can also consider adoption disclosure applications where an adoption agency is proposing that protected information from adoption records will be disclosed or withheld, contrary to the views expressed by the person the information is about.

Please read on for more detailed information including the section on frequently asked questions.
