In the form, you will also need to describe the incident that took place and specify how the government institution did not comply with the Act.

How much time will it take to complete the form?
If all your information is ready, it should take you about 15 minutes to fill out the form. Keep in mind that this can vary depending on how much time it takes you to describe your complaint.
