Two judges have agreed to serve as members of the CervicalCheck Tribunal, with the Health Minister saying the tribunal will now be established 'without delay'.
Stephen Donnelly has announced the appointments of Ms Justice Ann Power as chairperson and Mr Justice Tony O'Connor as an ordinary member of the tribunal.
Minister Donnelly said the tribunal will allow women to progress their cases in a "sensitive manner".
The CervicalCheck Tribunal was first announced last year.
Under the proposals, the tribunal will allow women to have their cases heard without having to go to court.
The start of its work was delayed earlier this year due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ms Justice Mary Irvine had previously been announced as chairperson, but she is no longer able to carry out the role after being appointed President of the High Court last month.
Minister Donnelly has also announced that the CervicalCheck Steering Committee will be reconvened, with an independent chair to be appointed "as soon as a suitable candidate can be identified".
The committee was first established to "provide oversight and assurance" on the Government's decisions in relation to the cancer screening programme.
The move to reconvene that committee has been welcomed by the 221+ Patient Support Group.
They said in a statement: "An independent chair is something we would have wished to see from the outset of the Committee.
"We look forward to the early resumption of its work as the resolution of a number of key issues including the regime for mandatory disclosure and the sustainable role of patient advocates in healthcare management and governance are still outstanding."
