⚖️Organisational Compliance

This section is for your information only as it is the organisation that has to fulfil these requirements not the Advisor.

However, the OISC recognises that the type and complexity of the cases being handled by the supervisee, as well as their level of experience, will influence how many case files are reviewed.

A client can complain to the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) if they think you have given them poor advice or an inadequate service, They can complain about any adviser, solicitor or barrister – even if they didn’t find them through the OISC.
