1 BACKGROUND: An interim order is designed to maintain the status quo until the Panel can consider the application in detail.  It may be made by the President or a sitting Panel.  Often a sitting Panel has not been appointed at the stage of considering the making of an interim order.  An interim order does not indicate that the Panel has decided to conduct proceedings or necessarily indicate the merits of an application for a declaration of unacceptable circumstances.
