Annual Report 2010-11 available

28 November 2011

The Commission’s annual report for the year 2010-11 was tabled in both houses of Parliament on 24 November 2011. Electronic copies of the report are now publicly available on this website.

The report summarises a very challenging year for the Commission. Complaints went up by 16.8%, continuing increases experienced over the past five years. Over the past five years, the number of inquiries has grown by almost 40%, while the number of written complaints grew by over 50%.

In response to the increasing number of complaints, the Commission has had to alter its practices. Throughout the year, more complaints were assessed using the information provided, without obtaining a response from the provider, as long as there was sufficient information to make a decision. This has allowed the Commission to deal with complaints more effectively without neglecting significant issues of public health and safety.
