Stage 1 of the AFCA process is where AFCA facilitates discussions and negotiations between the parties. All relevant documents are exchanged and the issues in dispute are identified.
Stage 2 is conciliation and the parties come face to face with a conciliator from the AFCA national panel. The role of the conciliator is to assist the parties to explore options for settlement of the dispute and to help parties to agree on
their own outcome.
Stage 3 is where the independent adjudicator is requested to make a decision “on the papers” taking into account the relevant law, fairness and reasonableness. If you accept the adjudicator’s decision it is binding on the member.
If your concerns involve ethical conduct you may wish to consider raising your concerns in writing with the Financial Planning Association of Australia Limited (FPA). They can be contacted at PO Box 109, Collins Street West, Melbourne
