A full and detailed response should be provided to you within one month of the receipt of your complaint. Where an answer cannot be provided within this period, you shall be informed of the causes of the delay and you will be informed of the date at which the response is likely to be provided.
At any stage, should you feel that you did not obtain a satisfactory answer, you may appeal directly to the Complaint Officer:
