Rules and Practice Directives


The Administrative Tribunals Act section 11 allows the STBCAB to establish Rules respecting practice and procedure to facilitate the just and timely resolution of matters before it.

As any changes to the Rules respecting the practices and procedures for the Skilled Trades BC Appeal Board are made, they will be posted to this website.  These practices and procedures are to be followed during the appeal process.  Any question of procedure that arises during a hearing and is not provided for in these Rules will be decided by the Panel Chair.

The Rules may be amended from time to time and as required by the STBCAB.


This is the form referred to in the STBCAB Rules.

Form 1 — Notice of Appeal Form

Practice Directives

The Administrative Tribunals Act section 12 requires that the Board issue practice directives respecting:

  • the usual time period for completing an application and for completing the procedural steps within an application, and
  • the usual time period within which the Board’s final decision and reasons are to be released after the hearing of the application is completed.

Below you will find the current STBCAB practice directive.  Additional practice directives will be posted as they are issued.
