Appeal Process

Under the Natural Products Marketing (BC) Act (NPMA), BC Farm Industry Review Board (BCFIRB) can hear appeals from anyone who is aggrieved by or dissatisfied with an order, decision or determination of an agricultural commodity board in B.C.
You must file a written notice of appeal with BCFIRB within 30 days of the commodity boards’ order, decision or determination, or you may lose the right to file your appeal. Please refer to the BCFIRB’s Rules of Practice and Procedure for Appeals (Rules).

Also be informed that the filing of an appeal does not in itself operate as a stay of the decision being appealed. The Commission’s decision remains in force unless the BCFRIB directs that the Order be withdrawn. A BCFIRB decision is issued on completion of the appeal process.
