There are two parts to the rules that govern the procedures of the Board. Part I is the SJTO Common Rules and Part II is the CFSRB specific rules.

The SJTO Common Rules are grounded in the core adjudicative values and principles of the SJTO which govern the work of the cluster. Common Rules provide a consistent overarching framework of common procedures.

The SJTO Practice Directions support the Common Rules of Procedure and provide guidance about what the tribunal expects of the parties and in turn what the parties can expect of the tribunal. They assist in understanding and applying the rules.
