When determining the appropriate remedy, we will consider the extent of loss or damage suffered by you, relevant legal principles, the MFAA Code of Practice and other applicable codes of conduct, concepts of fairness, and relevant industry best practices.

We will review our Internal Dispute Resolution Procedures every three (3) years to ensure our complaints systems operate effectively.
