Compliants - How it works

If you wish to make a formal complaint under the G.C.C.F. disciplinary procedures. Please complete the relevant forms and return them to the G.C.C.F. offices so that we can progress the matter.


There is a £15 administration fee for processing all complaints. If the complaint relates to cat welfare or can be dealt with under the fixed penalty system there is no further charge. For all other complaints a further fee of £160 is charged which may be refunded if the complaint is found proved by the Disciplinary Committee. Please enclose the fee with your forms.


All communications should be in writing to the office with the envelope marked for the attention of the Investigation Committee. Once you receive your Investigation Committee reference number, please ensure that this is quoted on all correspondence. We do not normally accept e-mails as part of the evidence as we cannot verify authenticity. Documents with original signatures are required. All necessary details must be included on the form.


Please do not telephone the office about your complaint as they are no longer being processed in the office and the staff will be unable to answer your questions.


Details of the disciplinary procedures and the rules that are dealt with under the fixed penalties system are on the GCCF Website. If you require printed copies please request these from the G.C.C.F. office enclosing a large S.A.E.
