How welfare complaints are prioritised

In Queensland, all complaints about animal welfare incidents are given a priority rating (critical, major, secondary or minor) according to the type and severity of the animal welfare issue.

These ratings allow inspectors and complaints coordinators to prioritise action and resources so that the most severe problems are addressed first.
