The Claims Portal Behaviour Committee is made up of claimant and compensator representatives and was formed to assist with the resolution of behavioural issues arising from use of the Claims Portal. 

The Behaviour Committee provides general guidance on appropriate behaviour expected by users of the Portal in relation to specific issues brought to their attention.

Claims Portal Ltd takes any suspected misuse of the Portal seriously and urges all user organisations to ensure that staff fully understand the requirements of the MoJ Protocol and how to use the Portal.

If you are concerned about the behaviour of another Portal user, you should raise the matter formally in writing directly with the organisation concerned in the first instance.  If a satisfactory outcome cannot be achieved, the issue may be reported to the Behaviour Committee using the Behaviour Report Form below.

Behaviour Report Form

Completing the Behaviour Report Form

  • Forms must be completed by an appropriate senior manager or partner of the firm or organisation
  • Except in exceptional circumstances, behaviour issues must in the first instance be raised formally in writing with the other party;
  • Copy correspondence relating to the issue and any response is expected to be attached to complaint forms; and
  • Reference should be made to the relevant rules as appropriate.
