The Compliance Committee (formerly Disciplinary and Standards Committee)
The Compliance Committee (CC) was established by the TPO Board to deal with the small number of member agents who breach the relevant Codes of Practice and/or fail to meet their obligations as TPO members in other ways.
A range of disciplinary action can be taken including expulsion from the Ombudsman scheme.
The Ombudsman refers cases to the CC where a serious breach of the Codes of Practice has been found or where a registered firm fails to pay an award, following unsuccessful efforts made to explain their membership obligations.
A copy of the CC terms of reference and procedures can be found here.
