Who we receive complaints about

CILEx Regulation deals with complaints about the conduct of CILEx Members, CILEx Practitioners and CILEx Authorised Entities (firms, businesses or practices) that we regulate. Complaints can be made by anyone. 

How to complain

If you have a complaint about the conduct of a person or entity we regulate you can complete the CILEx Regulation complaints form. Alternatively, you may send your complaint to us by any other means (for example, by letter or email), however, it helps us better if you can complete our complaints form as it is designed to ask you questions that will help with our investigation.
