A Step-by-Step Guide to our Appeals Procedure

If you are not happy with a certificate or examination decision made by CATG, we have an appeals procedure.

We aim to resolve your appeal within a few days. You can appeal to CATG:

In writing - address your letter to Glenn Sharples at CATG, Block B, The Crescent Building, Northwood, Santry, Dublin 9, Dublin, D09 C6X8, Ireland

By telephone - call Glenn on 00353 (01) 1893 4993 or 0044 (0) 07941 536543

By e mail - visit our website at and address your appeal to Glenn Sharples

Glenn will telephone you or visit your site to discuss your appeal.

We will aim to resolve most appeals within a few days.

On receipt of your appeal, we will confirm whether the appeal relates to CATG.

We will log your appeal and acknowledge it and confirm all details you are unhappy with.

We will contact you regularly until your appeal has been resolved.

However, if we have not been able to resolve your appeal within one week, we will call and write to tell you:

  • Why we have not yet reviewed your appeal
  • Who is dealing with your appeal and their details
  • When we will contact you again

If together we cannot reach an agreement, we will send you:

  • A letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a resolution, or
  • Refer your appeal to our Board of Governors.  They will issue the CATG final response letter, which will explain our position

A letter shall be dispatched within 24 hours to you acknowledging receipt of the appeal and confirming your right to present your case in person to our Board of Governors.

You will be informed of the date when your appeal is to be heard and the composition of our Board of Governors.

You have the right to state objections to the composition of our Board of Governors.  Your reasons for objection will be considered by our Board of Governors who will decide whether or not it is appropriate to amend the composition accordingly.

Our Board of Governors will consider the nature of your appeal from your written report.  Where necessary, our Board of Governors will request the presence of the relevant auditor during all or part of the meeting.  The reports shall be studied and a recommendation from our Board of Governors made accordingly.  The meeting shall be minuted.

We are happy for you to contact INAB regarding our services and response to your appeal.
