As soon as possible after receiving a complaint, the Commission will assess the complaint submission to determine its authenticity and initiate any investigations that may be necessary under the circumstances.
    Unless the Commission, in its sole discretion, determines otherwise, the details of all complaints, including the complainant’s identity, will be disclosed to the Authorized Client Provider against whom the complaint is lodged for a response.


    The Commission will inform the complainant of the steps it is taking to help resolve the issue.
