Customer satisfaction. Guidelines for complaints handling in organizations, and UNE-ISO 10003 Quality management. Customer satisfaction. Guidelines for dispute resolution external to organizations. The main goal of quality management it is to satisfy the customer's requirements and to endeavour to exceed their expectations.
Standard UNE-ISO 10002 provides guidance to organizations for planning, designing, operating, maintaining and improving a process for efficiently and effectively handling complaints in all kinds of activities, whether they are commercial or non-commercial, including e-commerce-related activities. The standard aims to benefit the organisation and its customers as regards claims filed, as well as other relevant interested parties.
