If your licence application or renewal/restoration application is refused, or your licence is cancelled or suspended, you will be informed in writing.

Where possible under the Tattoo Industry Act 2012, you will be given reasons for the decision and will receive details about your right of review.

The right of review allows you to request an internal review of the decision to refuse your application or to cancel your licence. You have 28 days to make a written application for an internal review, which must be completed by SLED within 21 days of the receipt of your request or within an agreed timeframe.

You can also request an administrative review of the decision by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT). Contact NCAT on 1300 006 228 or visit ncat.nsw.gov.au.
