Life cycle of a review
The following is an overview of the life cycle of a Request for Review. For details about the review process, please refer to the
Review Division Practices and Procedures
- A request for review is submitted to WorkSafeBC's Review Division.
- The request is registered as received and assigned a number.
If the request is submitted late along with a request for an extension of time, the request for review will be registered, late.
If the request for an extension of time is accepted, the request for review will be registered.
If the request for an extension is denied, the review will not be conducted and the status will be changed to not accepted.
If the request does not meet the following criteria, it is considered submitted late:
- A request for review of a WorkSafeBC decision on a claim or assessment matter must be submitted to the Review Division within 90 DAYS of the date the decision was made.
- A request for review of a WorkSafeBC decision or order on an occupational health and safety or claims cost levy matter must be submitted to the Review Division within 45 DAYS of the date the decision was made.
- The Review Division performs an initial check to ensure the request for review contains the necessary information and meets the requirements of the legislation.
If it passes the check, the request for review will be initiated. If it does not, the review will not be conducted and the status will be changed to not accepted.
- Once the request for review is initiated, a copy of the decision file will be sent to all participants in the review.
All participants will then be given the opportunity to make a submission on the review.
- When all submissions have been received - or the submission deadline expires - the request for review will be assigned to a Review Officer who will conduct the review. It is now under review.
- When the officer finishes the review and makes his or her decision, the review is completed.
A copy of the decision will be sent to all participants in the review along with a covering letter explaining the next steps if the decision is varied, cancelled or referred back.
Other status conditions possible:
- If at any point the applicant asks for the request for review to be withdrawn, the review may not be conducted.
- At any point, a review may be suspended (temporarily put on hold) awaiting the completion of a related event or decision. Once the suspension has ended, the review process will continue.
The request for review has been received and registered. It is now being checked to ensure it is valid and meets legal requirements.
