Grievance for individuals
Do you have a grievance with our service or a complaint?
The operator of the project, EuroAfrica Interconnector Ltd., has a team that looks into every complaint with the aim of improving our service and procedures during the manufacturing stage and in relation to our activities, either offshore or on-land. Once the project is operational, the team will investigate all aspects of the interconnector, ranging from dissatisfaction expressed by staff or contractors, health and safety of communities involved, to the environmental impact and levels of responsibility.
We are committed to an open dialogue in order to build trust and a lasting relationship with the communities involved along the route of the interconnector, in order to resolve any issues as quickly and fairly as possible.
How to prepare your grievance
To submit your grievance, first ask yourself the following questions:
– Have you (or anyone else) been treated unfairly or unjustly?
– Are you dissatisfied with our work and explanations given?
– Are you concerned about the future outcome of the project and how it will impact on your community?
– Have you expressed your concerns to any public official or one of our contractors? If so, to whom?
– Have you already submitted a complaint and have not received any response whatsoever?
How will we review a grievance?
The EuroAfrica Interconnector aims to respond to all complaints and concerns in a fair, transparent and timely manner. However, if you are not at all satisfied with the proposed resolution of the grievance, you can resort to any third-party body for arbitration, including the Cyprus law courts (EuroAfrica Interconnector Ltd. is registered and operational within the jurisdiction of the Republic of Cyprus).
We are committed to thoroughly investigate all genuine complaints and process your grievance as follows:
– Confirmation of receipt within seven (7) calendar days;
– Response to grievance within 30-60 calendar days;
– If the matter is of a more complex nature that warrants further or expert investigation, and a delay is expected, you will be informed of this delay within the initial timeframe of 30-60 days.
– Grievances which have been addressed before or which are not directly related to the activities of the EuroAfrica Interconnector will not be investigated.
We aim to find mutually acceptable solutions whenever possible and will try to discuss or propose a resolution with you.
In order to consider any grievance, EuroAfrica Interconnector Ltd. needs to consider facts and evidence. All details of your grievance will remain strictly confidential unless the investigation process requires this information to be made known to additional parties within the EuroAfrica Interconnector or external partners and/or communities.
A summary of grievance reports and their progress or resolution will be included in EuroAfrica Interconnector Ltd.’s Annual Report and will be subsequently posted on our website, with the express caution to refrain from publishing personal data sensitive to the identity of the complainant.
