One of the royal commissioners presiding over an inquiry into the Northern Territory's juvenile justice system has rejected concerns of bias.

Mick Gooda, the indigenous social justice commissioner, on Tuesday promised "externeous" factors won't affect his conclusions from the hearings.

"I wish to assure ... the community that I will look only at the evidence and other information given to the commission and that nothing extraneous will affect the conclusions I reach with my co-commissioner," he said in an opening statement at a directions hearing in Darwin.
