Some complaints are complex in their nature and therefore please allow up to 21 working days
for a full written response.
WHAT IF I DISAGREE WITH THE COMPLAINT OFFICER’S RESPONSE?
Should you disagree with the response, then your complaint will be referred to the Board of Directors of the Group for a final decision.
