I'm a bit confused by your reply.

I don't think anyone was saying that it would be restricted to the IRP:
if DIDP appeals has its own process, so be it. The question is whether
DID decisions should be immunised from challenge under the IRP.

The IRP is open to every "materially affected party".

The engagement, escalation and enforcement staircase only applies where
the IRP complainant is the Empowered Community, and describes the
Empowered Community's process for deciding whether to bring such a case.
Where the IRP complainant is some other entity, that entity decides for
itself whether to bring an IRP case.

Requests for Reconsideration are an advisory process.
