    Thanks! It was a basic question, but strangely I could not find the answer on Google nor ALC. Sometimes rendaku is not applied, so I am never really sure for new composite words. – Nicolas Raoul Nov 17 '11 at 2:08

    @Nicolas: You may want to wait for a while before accepting my answer, because someone may be able to provide a verifiable answer. I do not have any dictionary which shows the pronunciation of 対応済, but I suspect that NHK日本語発音アクセント辞典 may contain the pronunciation of it. – Tsuyoshi Ito Nov 17 '11 at 2:20
  • I realized that suffix 済 does not change its pronunciation depending on the word it is attached to, and therefore it was much easier to answer the question with a verifiable source. – Tsuyoshi Ito Nov 17 '11 at 23:02
