En préparant cette Politique, FirstBank s’est efforcé d’aligner ses procédures avec des exigences légales et réglementaires pertinentes aussi bien que la meilleure pratique actuelle. Cette Politique est particulièrement conçue pour satisfaire les exigences ISO BSI 10002:2004 – la Satisfaction du client – des Directives pour le traitement de plaintes dans des organisations
Cette Politique est destinée à adresser les plaintes faites à FirstBank. Conformément à la certification ISO 10002-2004 (organisme international de normalisation) , une plainte sous cette Politique(Police) est défini comme suit :
Une expression d’insatisfaction faite à une organisation, liée à ses produits, ou au processus de traitement des plaintes lui-même, où une réponse ou une résolution est attendue explicitement ou implicitement.
Toute personne ou organisation (le plaignant) qui est peu satisfaite d’un produit ou d’un service fourni par la Banque, pour une raison quelconque, peuvent contacter FirstBank pour se plaindre. Une plainte peut être orale ou écrite. De temps en temps, les plaintes peuvent être par un retour négatif, qui n’exige pas forcément une résolution ou un suivi formel. Cependant ce type de retour d’informations négatives a de la valeur, néanmoins la Politique de Plaintes ne s’applique pas au retour d’information de cette nature.
