Notices to the Media
Notice to the media of publication ban requests
In every Tribunal hearing there is an automatic publication ban prohibiting the publication or broadcast of the name, other identifying information and medical information concerning a patient unless the Tribunal orders otherwise. See Rule 2.2.2 of the Rules of Procedure.
The Tribunal may also order a broader publication ban as set out in Rule 2.2.8(c). Anyone seeking a broader publication ban must provide notice of the request to the media by filing a Form 2A. Below are the current cases where this request has been made and the Tribunal has yet to make its order. Our Upcoming Hearings page provides information about hearings that will happen in the next 60 days.
