Please Note: It's important that you provide SWIFT with complete and detailed information about the unlicensed activity on an active job site and indicate if there are employees on the project. The more information and evidence (including photos), the better.

Complaints are processed according to the date of receipt, priority, and staff availability if the job site is located in a remote area. The complaint will be assigned to an enforcement representative who will follow up on the information that is provided.
