Complaint Management

There is a well-established and documented procedure for handling complaints and work that do not conform to the applicable norm within Romer Labs. A database is used to document all complaints (deriving both from internal and external sources). There, the responsibilities for root cause analyses and corrective or preventive measures are also defined and the communication process to the customer is clearly established. Among other things, the complaint procedure – in the context of our program for addressing risks and opportunities – serves as a starting point for the continual improvement of our products, processes and service.
