This policy outlines the principles we use to guide our actions and decisions:

  • proportionality — the action we take is proportional to the seriousness of the non-compliance
  • transparency — we publish information on how to comply with the legislation
  • consistency — we make sure our decisions and actions are consistent
  • confidentiality — we make sure when investigating complaints to keep our information confidential
  • timeliness — we investigate efficiently so as to minimise costs and delays

It also describes the range of enforcement options and what they involve.
