How to file a position statement or a request to intervene

How can I participate in an adjudication case?

If you want to participate in a current case before the Agency, you have a couple of options: you can file a position statement or you can request to intervene.

Position statements

An interested person may file a position statement in a dispute proceeding under section 23 of the Dispute Adjudication Rules. It’s a way of having their views considered in the Agency’s decision-making process.

After a person files a position statement, their participation ends as they are not a party to the dispute proceeding.

A position statement must include the information set out in Schedule 10. You can use Form 10: Position Statement or another document.

For more information, refer to section 23.

Interventions

You can make a request under section 29 of the Dispute Adjudication Rules for authorization to intervene.

Unlike a person filing a position statement, you must show that you have a substantial and direct interest in the dispute proceeding.

A request to intervene must include the information set out in Schedule 16. You can use Form 16: Request to intervene or another document.

If your request to intervene is granted by the Agency, you can make your views known by filing an intervention with the Agency and the parties. You may also be allowed to actively participate in the dispute proceeding as a party if the Agency allows it. The Agency Secretariat can provide the contact information of the parties.

An intervention must include the information set out in Schedule 8. You can use Form 8: Intervention or another document.

For more information, refer to section 21.
