When making a complaint please state clearly the full nature of the complaint. Remember we can only investigate FACTS! Receiving a Complaint Upon receipt of a complaint Avalon Certification shall record the following details:

  • Name of complainant

We shall send you a written acknowledgement within 28 days confirming that we have received your complaint. Investigating a Complaint Full details of all complaints shall be forwarded to a Director of Avalon Certification, who shall carry out a full investigation into the matter in order to:

  • Establish if the allegations are true
  • Establish the cause
  • Identify any personnel involved
  • Identify the contributory factors
  • Identify any trends If the complaint is not justified the complainant shall be informed and given the reasons why it is not justified.

If the complaint is justified the Director shall instigate corrective action to the satisfaction of the complainant. The complainant shall be informed of the outcome. Justified :A complaint that is ‘justified’ is a complaint that Avalon Certification have accepted in either full or in part.
