Our Complaint Procedures
 
 
A.    General Procedures
 
A customer can register a complaint over the phone, in writing or by calling in person at any Customer Service centre. A complaint number is assigned to each complaint registered on our customer service system.
 
The customer will be informed by phone or by mail of the action taken.
 
If the customer is not satisfied with our reply, he may still refer the matter to the Public Complaints Bureau of the Prime Minister’s Office or to the Ombudsman, as the case may be.
 
B.     On-Line Complaints
 
The Customer can also submit his complaint / query through our website/e-mail and the complaint will be dealt with according to established procedures.

We shall maintain an on-line Computerised Complaints Analysis and Monitoring System (CAMS) to ensure that all complaints and requests are attended to within the service time prescribed and we shall take prompt corrective action in line with the standards set by the CWA.
