The Supreme Court of Kazakhstan and the higher regional courts are responsible for evaluating the performance of lower court judges. They focus on judges with high reversal rates or those who have made significant procedural errors. When reviewing court judgments, reasons for the reversal or modification of a judgment are noted, as is the quality of the decision and timeliness of court proceedings. Judicial performance review committees solicit anonymous questionnaires from the public (including lawyers), review performances at judicial training workshops, consider any complaints or disciplinary actions filed against a judge, and look for negative news stories appearing in the media.
