Topics

  • Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002


Background behind as 4269 as iso 10002 l.jpg

Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Request for a standard on complaints handling came from NSW Law Society.

  • Pressure from government and regulators on the professions in early 90’s to have effective complaints handling systems.

  • Some indicia were emerging (e.g. visibility, accessibility) but no real consensus on the essential elements.

Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Standards Australia formed a committee in early 90’s to draft a standard. Made up of representatives from the regulators, professions, consumers and industry.

  • The notion of essential elements grew out of the committee’s deliberations.

  • The essential elements set down outcomes that an organisation needed to achieve to have an effective complaints handling system.

  • The guidance section was meant to do just that: it was hoped that innovation would develop with the standard in that format.

Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Standard published in 1995. First of its kind in the world.

  • Has been embraced by regulators and industry based dispute resolution schemes, and companies as a set of objective criteria for complaints handling.

  • In the late 90’s ISO’s consumer policy advisory committee (COPOLCO) became interested in standards for the global market.

  • This interest grew out of an emerging “black hole” in consumer protection particularly as some consumer transactions were being conducted over the net.

  • COPOLCO requested ISO draft a standard on complaints handling

Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • A working group was set up to draft the standard.

  • Members from Canada, UK, Japan, Argentina, Australia.

  • Source documents included AS 4269, UK & Argentinean Management Systems Standards, ISO 9000, Japanese standard and the Australian standard on compliance programs.

Background behind AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • ISO 10002 published in July 2004

  • A Standards Australia committee was established to decide whether to “pick up” ISO 10002 as an Australian Standard.

  • Committee agreed to this subject to some additional wording in the guiding principle on accessibility

  • AS ISO 10002 published in April 2006

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Many of the “essential elements” in AS 4269 are referred to in the “Guiding Principles” in AS ISO 10002.

  • AS ISO 10002 has included “customer- focused approach” and “ continuous improvement” as guiding principles

  • Structure of two standards different.


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000211 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Much more guidance given in AS ISO 10002 than AS 4269.

  • More logical flow in the new standard.

  • Influence and relationship with quality standards and quality management systems in AS ISO 10002.


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000212 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • AS 4269 basically was the essential elements and guidance.

  • AS ISO 10002 is made up of:

  • Guiding principles

  • Complaints handling framework

  • Planning and design

  • Operation of complaints handling process

  • Maintenance & Improvement

  • Annexes


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000213 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Commitment : contained in both standards. In essential elements section of AS 4269 but in framework section of AS ISO 10002. Both acknowledge the role of top management.

  • Fairness : covered as an essential element in AS 4269. However, the term Objectivity is used in AS ISO 10002 and there is detailed guidance on this topic in the new standard.


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000214 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Resources : not a major heading in AS 4269 but covered in Planning and Design ( 6.4 in AS ISO 10002).

  • Visibility: similar coverage in both standards.

  • Accessibility : again similar coverage in both standards.


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000215 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Responsiveness: similar treatment in both standards.

  • Charges: similar in both standards.

  • Remedies: More explicit treatment in AS 4269 ( 2.10, 3.10). Annexures D&E of AS ISO 10002 contain a list of possible remedy types.


Differences between as 4269 as iso 1000216 l.jpg

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Data collection: covered in both standards. Both standards talk about the need for all complaints should to be classified and then analysed to identify systematic, recurring andsingle incident problems and trends, and to help eliminate the underlyingcauses ofcomplaints.

Differences between AS 4269 & AS ISO 10002

  • Accountability : covered in Essential Elements in AS 4269 and Guiding Principles in AS ISO 10002 but more guidance given in the former ( 2.13, 3.13).

  • Review and continuous improvement: covered in old standard ( 2.14, 3.14) but a major point in AS ISO 10002 (8.6)
