Do you want to make a complaint?

The Commissioner has a complaints process allowing entities or third parties to complain to the Commissioner in the first instance, before making an appeal to the Tribunal. Complaints could be about the decision of the Commissioner or about how the Commissioner works. If the complaint is about a decision of the Commissioner, the complainant can go straight to the Tribunal if they want to.
