(b)         Adjudicate minor complaints and issue formal letters of disapproval (Disapproval Letters) which shall include, where appropriate, directions for required corrective actions;
 
(c)         Direct any other course of action in relation to dismissed or minor complaints as the Committee may think fit; and

The Committee may request information and explanations relating to any complaint from any party, where necessary.
