All reports received by GWIC, including complainant details, are treated confidentially. However, we may be obliged to disclose all details of an investigation if a matter proceeds to court or if we are otherwise compelled to provide the information by law. All reports of suspected non-compliance submitted using the reporting form are acknowledged upon receipt and prioritised for action on the basis of risk. Risk is based on the potential (or actual) for harm to people, animals, or the environment.
GWIC may not be able to comment on specific compliance and enforcement activities, including providing any details of its investigations to a complainant. This is to preserve the rights of all parties (such as the presumption of innocence) while investigations are underway. Complainants will however be notified at the completion of an investigation. Provision of your personal information is voluntary.
If you wish to remain anonymous, please ensure you remember the Password that you will set prior to submit your report as well as the Report ID number that will be displayed on your screen once your report has been submitted. Then you should log back in on a regular basis to monitor the progress of your report by clicking on the "Log in to follow-up" button located on the top right corner of this reporting form.
