  • top management involvement and commitment through adequate acquisition and deployment of resources, including personnel training;
  • recognizing and addressing the needs and expectations of complainants;
  • providing complainants with an open, effective, and easy-to-use complaints process;
  • analysing and evaluating complaints in order to improve the product and customer service quality;
