Complaints Form

Important Note

The CABE complaints process enables complaints to be raised about individual members of the Association with the objective of ensuring that professional standards are maintained and the Code of Conduct for members is adhered to. The CABE complaints process does not provide for financial penalties against members or the awarding of costs or financial redress to complainants. 

Before You Begin

Prior to lodging a complaint please ensure you have read the Code of Conduct and associated information.

Complaints can only be considered where a breach of the Code of Conduct has occurred.

    • Pay compensation or instruct a Member to do so; or
    • Determine whether a Member has acted negligently (this is for the courts to decide);
    • Interfere with or become involved in civil or criminal court action against a Member; or
    • Deal with any matter where no evidence can be provided to substantiate the complaint.
