Guaranteed Standards of Service

Guaranteed and Overall Standards of Service are obligations we’re required to meet. These include appointments scheduled for work on your meter. You can download our Guaranteed Standards of Service policy.

Why can complaint resolution be delayed?

Delays to complaint resolution generally occur when:

  • the complaint needs more detailed investigation or
  • more information is required from a third party to make sure that the complaint is dealt with to the standard that our customers expect.
