At PDL, we are committed to delivering the highest quality service to our members. We do this by developing strong individual relationships, having great communication and being accessible to our members 24/7. We have an organisational culture focused on exceeding member expectations. However, disputes may still arise. We have therefore developed the following Complaints and Dispute Resolution process which is fair, efficient and accessible to all our members.

If you would like to make a complaint, please phone us on 1300 854 838 and speak to one of our member service officers, who will do their best to assist you. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will acknowledge your complaint with 24 business hours. If our member service officers are not able to resolve your complaint, they will refer the complaint to PDL’s Operations Manager.

If they require further information or need to refer the matter to one of PDL’s service providers, they may need to agree on an alternative timeframe with you.
Where a complaint cannot be resolved by the PDL Operations Manager, you can request that the matter be referred to PDL’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who will treat your complaint as a dispute and endeavour to resolve it.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction within 30 days, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay and provide you with information about external dispute resolution options that are available to you that you may wish to pursue. These include:
