About the FRC Making complaints or referrals to the FRC

Making complaints or referrals to the FRC

We receive complaints from members of the public, customers, investors and other interested parties, and you can find out more about the types of complaints we can review and how we investigate them below.
You can also use our online form to submit your complaint or referral.
If you ask for your concern to be treated in confidence, the FRC will seek to protect your identity from the organisation you are reporting and, where possible, only disclose your identity with your consent.

Referrals from the public and investors can be an important source of information for the FRC.  If you think your complaint falls within our remit, or you would like to complain about how we performed our role, please fill in our complaints form.
We will tell you if your complaint is something that we can look into or we will guide you to an alternative body if appropriate.
