Dave Hanna will stand trial over allegations he destroyed potential royal commission evidence.

Former CFMEU boss David Arthur Hanna has been committed to stand trial over allegations he destroyed documents in the lead-up to the Trade Union Royal Commission.

Brisbane Magistrate Jacqui Payne on Thursday ruled there was sufficient evidence to send the case to the District Court.

Hanna, who pleaded not guilty, is facing a single count of destroying, concealing or mutilating documents over four days in April 2014, which could have been required as evidence at the royal commission into Australia's union sector.
