Once an emergency order has been executed, it must immediately be submitted to the Child Welfare Tribunal for approval. The order shall be approved as soon as possible, if possible within 48 hours of receipt. The Child Welfare Tribunal checks that the order was issued by the appropriate authority and that the description of the emergency provided in the order meets the statutory requirements. The Act does not allow the Child Welfare Tribunal to verify the descriptions.
