The nomination process

The CIC Adjudication Appointment Service Complaints Procedure has been established to set out the procedure that will be followed when a complaint has been received by CIC about one or more of its ADR services or about an Adjudicator appointed by CIC. The Complaints Procedure regulates the consideration of any complaint made to the CIC about its nomination process, its appointment of an Adjudicator and the quality of its customer service in the course of its role as an ANB.

The CIC will not consider complaints about the merits of an Adjudicator’s decision or the conduct of an individual Adjudicator, which must always be a matter for the courts (or arbitration where applicable).

More information on the complaints procedure can be found here.
