I have read that I will be recorded during my forthcoming PIP tribunal hearing. Is this correct and will I be asked for my permission as I'm not comfortable with this . Thanks

    Hello Mumpsy
    It is against the law for a Claimant to record a Trubunal hearing themselves.
    If it is a Telephone Tribunal hearing there will be a recording made by the tribunal themselves.
    If you want to challenge the First teir tribunal you will need to request a "recording of Proceedings" and a "Statement of Reason"
    Hope that helps

    That wasn't my question. I asked if THEY record my tribunal hearing. 
    I have no intention of recording it myself. 
    If it is a face to face meeting in person, do THEY record it. 
    Thanks

    Your question was answered. It’s known as Record Of Proceedings. (ROP) and Statement of Reasons (SOR) which will be the Judges hand written notes and this applies to face to face hearings. You shouldn’t request these unless you need to look for the error in law because it’s a lot of extra work for the Judge. 

    For telephone hearings if you request the ROP then you will be sent an audio CD. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It must be just me being a bit dumb but I still don't understand. 

    So are you saying that my tribunal hearing WILL be recorded ? 

    Sorry I just don't understand the reply

    I mean AUDIO or TV recorded. 

    I am not refering to handwritten or typed notes.

    I think that's where the confusion lies

    Hearings are not audio recorded unless you live in Scotland. The ROP that was mentioned above is the actual recording. This will be provided as written notes (transcript) from the Judge if you request the ROP and SOR. For telephone hearings the ROP will be sent as an audio CD.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
