Indicative Resolutions and Sanctions Guidance
In resolving a concern or complaint about a registrant members of our Registration and Professional Standards committee will be guided by our Indicative Resolutions and Sanctions Guidance.
If you feel that we haven’t met the high standards you should expect from us, you have a right to make a complaint. We take all complaints seriously and will listen to you to find a fair and balanced way to seek to put things right.
You can contact us to make a complaint:
In your complaint, please tell us when the incident(s) occurred, who it was you dealt with and some information about the incident(s).
Our administrator will help you with your complaint and address any issues or concerns you may have. If you put your complaint in writing to us (by letter or email), we will acknowledge it within five working days of receipt.
Sometimes things can be put right very quickly. If your concerns can be resolved sooner and more informally, we’ll aim to do so. If not, we’ll tell you which member of our management committee will be investigating your complaint. They will respond to you in writing within 20 working days.
If you remain dissatisfied when you receive this response from a member of our management committee, you can ask for your complaint to be reviewed by another member of the committee. A member of the panel will respond to you within a further 20 working days. This decision will be final and there is no further right of appeal.
