Complaints

  2. If the complaint is not resolved at that level, the complainant or someone representing the complainant may refer the complaint to the Managing Director.
  3. If a satisfactory outcome is not achieved, then the complainant should inform the sponsor (e.g. employer) and send a formal complaint to:

    The Managing Director
