Once the CPO has taken your complaint he or she will launch a full investigation into your complaint. This will include talking to everyone involved with the program against which you have made your complaint. The CPO will also pull the logger audio for that show so she or he can hear the show against which the complaint has been made.

If you are still not happy that your complaint has been dealt with and if the CPO believes that they have no more to add to the complaint then you may take your complaint to the Broadcasting Authority Of Ireland.
