      COMPLAINT HANDLING

      ADR Register has a complaint handling system that focuses on handling grievances, complaints, and disputes against and between practitioners.

      The system aims to:

      • ensure customer satisfaction and
      • take improvement measures based on the indications and results received.

      Our core premise is:

      • Grievances, complaints, and disputes are prevented
      • In the unlikely event that complaints, complaints or disputes do arise, the handling is done in a manner that is in accordance with the nature and principles of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), so that all parties involved in the context of the issue are in any case sufficiently feeling heard and taken seriously.

      WHAT IS CERTIFICATION
      Certification is the awarding of a quality mark (certificate) to individuals and companies/organizations based on an independent audit process (admission audit), against previously known and public criteria, which are the same for everyone. Every admission audit is reproducible/verifiable. Our certificate holders are found and made visible in the public register https://adr-register.com and may be sublisted in one or more other sub-registers.

      • Assigning tasks, roles, professions, and powers to the certificate holder, linked to identified work- and business processes/procedures.
