The Tribunals Service, launched 1 April 2006, is a new executive agency of the DCA, providing common administrative support to the main central government tribunals. It marks the biggest change to the tribunals system in almost half a century. The following are now part of the Tribunals Service (some having transferred sponsoring departments), with new websites to a common design:

Employment Appeal Tribunal

A number of other government tribunals expected to join the Tribunals Service in the future, including the Agricultural Land Tribunal, the Asylum Support Adjudicators, the Care Standards Tribunal and the Family Health Services Appeal Authority.
