What is the status quo regarding complaints handling?

Your complaint will be reviewed within the scope of an independent procedure by the Complaints Management team. In this context, all the relevant documents available to us will be subject to a renewed comprehensive and intensive review. We spare no effort in resolving your issues confidentially, individually and to your satisfaction.

Upon receipt of your complaint, we will process it immediately and send you a written confirmation of receipt to this effect. Where it is not possible to process complaints immediately, you will be given an interim response and continue to be kept informed about the next steps.
