From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A quasi-judicial body is an individual or organization which has powers resembling those of a court of law or judge and is able to remedy a situation or impose legal penalties on a person or organization.


Such bodies usually have powers of adjudication in such matters as:

breach of discipline
conduct rules
trust in the matters of money or otherwise.

Their powers are usually limited to a particular area of expertise, such as financial markets, employment law, public standards, immigration, or regulation.

Award and verdict

Awards and verdicts often depend on a pre-determined set of guidelines or punishment depending on the nature and gravity of the offence committed. Such punishment may be legally enforceable under the law of a country, it can be challenged in a court of law which is the final decisive authority.
