The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Scheme is a free and independent alternative dispute resolution scheme for small business and residential consumers in Australia who have a complaint about their telephone or internet service.

Established in 1993 and provided for under a Federal Act of Parliament, the TIO Scheme is operated by Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Ltd and is independent of industry, the government, and consumer organisations.

The TIO is authorised to investigate complaints about the connection or supply of telephone or internet services.

The TIO aims to settle disputes quickly in a fair, objective and non-bureaucratic way, having regard not only to the law and to good industry practice, but also to what is fair and reasonable in all the circumstances.

Complaints to the TIO can be made online or by phone, fax, email, in writing, via TTY or in person. Complaints may be made by the person with the problem or by a person authorised to represent the complainant.

Powers of the TIO
The general role and powers of the TIO are included in the Telecommunications (Consumer Protection and Service Standards) Act 1999. Copies of this Act are available from the Commonwealth Government.

The TIO has the authority to make Binding Decisions up to the value of $30,000, and Recommendations up to the value of $85,000.  For complaints received by the TIO before 1 May 2010 the TIO has the authority to make Binding Decisions up to the value of $10,000, and Recommendations up to the value of $50,000. Binding Decisions are legally binding upon the telecommunications company.

The TIO also has the power to exercise its discretion not to investigate or further investigate a case in certain circumstances.

See TIO Complaint Handling Procedures: About the TIO for more information.

Complaints dealt with by the TIO
The TIO deals with complaints where the complaint is within the TIO's jurisdiction (set out below).

On receiving a complaint, the TIO will ask whether the consumer has given the service provider an opportunity to consider the complaint.

The complaint must be made to the TIO within 12 months of the consumer becoming aware of the circumstances surrounding the complaint. The time limit may be extended by a further 12 months in certain cases.

The TIO will not handle a complaint issue that is specifically under consideration in legal proceedings.

Jurisdiction of the TIO
The TIO has jurisdiction to receive, investigate and facilitate the resolution of complaints where the complaint is about:

telecommunications services ("carriage services")
billing of content services
access to or use of land by a carrier
billing for carriage services, or
providing or supplying (or failure to provide or supply) carriage services.
These can include complaints about:

the standard telephone service
mobile services
internet services
pay-phones
delays in telephone and internet connections
printed and electronic White Pages
fault repairs
privacy
access to or use of land by a carrier, or
compliance with the Customer Service Guarantee Standard or industry Codes of Practice.
The TIO cannot handle complaints concerning:

the setting of tariffs and charges
privately-owned telecommunications equipment, other than the rented handset supplied with a basic phone service and telecommunications equipment sold as a part of a bundled contract
cabling, except cabling up to the first telephone socket in a premises
matters of telecommunications policy
the 000 emergency service
anti-competitive behaviour or restrictive business practices, or
the content of ‘information services’, eg. 1900 numbers and internet content.
See the TIO Constitution for more information.

Structure of the TIO Scheme
The structure of the TIO Scheme is designed to ensure its independence. The TIO Scheme is governed by a Council and a Board of Directors of Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Ltd, and the Scheme is managed by an independent Ombudsman appointed by the Board on the recommendation of Council.

The Council is comprised of five TIO member representatives and five consumer representatives, with an independent Chairman. While the Ombudsman has responsibility for the day to day operations of the scheme, the Council provides advice to the Ombudsman on policy and procedural matters.

The Board has corporate governance responsibilities including financial management of the scheme and ensuring compliance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association and the Constitution. With the exception of the independent director, who is appointed by the Board itself, directors are appointed by the TIO membership.

How the scheme is funded
The TIO is an industry-funded scheme, deriving its income solely from members who are charged fees for complaint resolution services provided by the TIO. Members consist of telecommunications carriers, telephone carriage providers and internet service providers.

A member is only charged complaint handling fees if the TIO receives a complaint from one of its customers. Therefore, the funding system acts as an incentive for members to keep TIO investigations to a minimum by developing and maintaining effective complaint handling and customer service procedures.

Relationship to industry and government
The TIO is independent of telecommunications companies, consumer groups, and government. However, the TIO provides information and assistance to organisations where this is required by law, or where this will help the industry and consumers to resolve complaints without investigation by the TIO.

Communications Alliance is a non-government body comprised of industry representatives that develops Codes of Practice for telecommunications providers. The TIO assists Communications Alliance in developing Codes by providing information and other feedback on complaints received by the TIO.

The TIO may refer systemic problems, identified through complaint statistics, to the Australian Communications & Media Authority, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Privacy Commissioner or other appropriate bodies.
