Last updated: July 2016 The Victims' Right to Review Scheme makes it easier for victims to seek a review of a CPS decision not to bring charges or to terminate all proceedings.Please note that the scheme applies only in relation to qualifying decisions made on or after 5 June 2013.More detailed guidance can be found in the full guidance on Victims' Right to Review (revised July 2016).
We do however take this opportunity to provide reassurance that, where the law permits us to do so, we will consider requests for review for up to three months from the communication of the qualifying decision.
Any delay beyond the three months will only be allowed in exceptional circumstances taking into account the facts of the individual case.
You should (normally) submit your request within five working days from the date of the communication of the decision in order to ensure a prompt review.
An early request allows for a prompt review and, where appropriate, proceedings to be (re) commenced as quickly as possible.
If you do not have those details to hand, contact details can also be found on this website.
