Draft guidance on complaints handling procedures for licence holders

Date published: 6 May 2015
Closing date: 29 July 2015

Train and station licence holders are required, by their operating licence, to have approved complaints handling procedures and to comply with them. In October 2013 ORR took over approval and monitoring of complaints handling procedures from the Department for Transport.

In a letter of 15 April 2014 we committed to review the guidance on complaints handling procedures, which dates from 2005. This consultation was on the proposed new guidance. It set out what we will look for when exercising our approval role and when monitoring for continuing compliance.

The final guidance has now been published (Wednesday 30 September 2015).

You can find more information about how to complain on ORR's complaints handling page.
