All of these processes – reconsideration, internal and external review, and judicial and merits review – may be contrasted with the handling of complaints – a contrast which, like that between internal and external review, will receive more attention in Chapter 7. ‘Handling complaints’ is a broader concept than ‘reviewing decisions’ in the sense that a complaint may or may not concern a decision and may or may not lead to the review of a decision. Typically, the tasks of reviewing decisions and handling complaints will be allocated to different (types of) institutions.

For instance, the New South Wales Land and Environment Court has the power, in some areas of its jurisdiction, to engage in 3 Survey merits review; but it also exercises functions that in federal law would be classified as judicial. By reason of the constitutional prohibitions of conferring non-judicial power on a court and of conferring both judicial and non-judicial power on the same body (whether a court or a non-court), the federal Parliament could not create such a body. Again, just as in such systems bodies called ‘courts’ may function as tribunals, so bodies called ‘tribunals’ may be courts.
