Guide to handling your complaint

This explains what you need to do if you would like to raise a complaint.

All ZEDRA offices are regulated by the regulator in their jurisdiction. They are therefore required to adhere to local regulatory requirements.

Definitions, which make it clear what must be treated as a complaint.

Timelines, which may include the following:

  • Escalations

Escalations – we are required to advise you who you may contact if your complaint is not resolved
to your satisfaction e.g. the local regulator / Ombudsman.
