MRPP Amended – After a period of public consultation, WCAT's Manual of Rules of Practice and Procedure (MRPP) has been amended in response to the judgment in Fraser Health Authority v. Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal, 2014 BCCA 499 on December 18, 2014. The B.C. Court of Appeal determined that WCAT does not have the power to reconsider a decision on the basis that the decision is patently unreasonable.

Most of the amendments affect post-decision matters commenced on or after December 18, 2014. Amendments to item #20.1.3 of the post decision provisions apply to post-decision matters arising after March 13, 2015.

You can find the Chair’s decision (#20) here. The amended provisions of the MRPP are attached to the Chair’s decision. The changes have been incorporated into the MRPP, which you can find on our website here.
