Defence Honours & Awards

Policy

Guidance to applicants on preparing a submission for Defence to review honours and awards

Defence encourages individuals to apply for an internal review of its decision regarding a military member's eligibility for a Defence honour or award, prior to an individual considering lodging an application for a review with the independent Defence Honours and Awards Appeals Tribunal.

Defence has firm rules governing what, and how, requests for reviews of honours and awards will be reviewed and managed. This guidance is provided to assist applicants to develop a comprehensive application for such a review, and how to proceed with submitting a request for Defence to review a decision that it has made.
