How long does it take

The timeframe for each complaint will vary and can depend on factors such as the issues raised in the complaint, the complexity of the matter, what evidence or information is available or must be collected, whether an expert opinion is needed and whether there are other agencies involved.

The first stages of a complaint can take up to 90 days before the National Board makes an initial decision. If further investigation is needed and the matter is complex, it can take more than 12 months.
