Registry Trust has a complaints reviewer who is appointed by our board. The Reviewer looks at complaints about Registry Trust. The Reviewer can look at how Registry Trust have handled the complaint but they cannot decide what is published on the public Register, nor can they instruct changes to the Register on behalf of a consumer.
