Ofcom (the telecoms regulator) has approved CISAS as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service. The service is for Residential and Small Business customers who are in dispute with a Communications Provider (CP) registered with CISAS.
What we will do
When you use CISAS you can expect us to be polite and professional and that we will adhere to the following service standards:
In addition to these service standards we are also required by Ofcom to report monthly CISAS performance against a defined set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
What we cannot do
CISAS is an alternative dispute resolution service and is not the telecoms regulator, so CISAS cannot force a member company to do anything that is not part of a CISAS adjudicator's decision.
CISAS is unable to give individuals advice either about the merits of their claim or on how to construct their claim. The same is true for CPs registered with CISAS. We must act independently at all times to settle a dispute in a fair and reasonable way.
CISAS does however provide case study bulletins and a compensation summary which can be found on the case study page. These provide a valuable insight on how our adjudicators have decided disputes in the past and can be used by both customers and CPs to shape and realistically value claims and offers of settlement.
CISAS cannot change an adjudicator’s decision once it has been published.
