Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission 2006/2007 Annual Report 19 In the past there were often substantial delays in bringing complaints to hearing, but it is now common practice for the Registrars conference to take place within two weeks, and the hearing within three months, of the date of referral to hearing. Of the 128 complaints finalised during the year 1 complaint was determined at hearing. This is an identical result to the last two years, each of which also had 1 matter determined at hearing.
