CCRC statistics

Casework statistics

The CCRC started work in April 1997. Between then and the end of January 2019 it has:

  • Referred 658 cases
  • Of the 648 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 437 appeals have been allowed and 198 dismissed*
  • 705 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 148 are awaiting review

So far we have received a total of 24,658 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 23,804 cases.

*The difference between the total number of CCRC referrals heard by the appeal courts and the number of outcomes recorded is accounted for by cases where the appeal proceedings have been heard but the judgement is awaited and a number of cases that were referred by the CCRC but the appeal was abandoned.
