Motorsport Australia appoints Stewards in accordance with the National Competition Rules (NCR) to determine a breach of the Rules, or a protest, or to settle a conflict of interest and if necessary impose a penalty.

Certain decisions of the Stewards or another Court of the First Instance are subject to appeal in accordance with the NCR.

Motorsport Australia has delegated the power of review to specialist Tribunals and the Australian Motor Sport Appeal Court (AMSAC). The procedure for an AMSAC appeal hearing is detailed in the Judicial Appendix.
