Investigating complaints

Complaints submitted verbally are investigated and if possible, remedied by our employees immediately.

If the complaint cannot be investigated immediately, minutes are taken on the complaint and the copy is handed over in case of verbal complaint, while in case of complaints communicated by phone, the copy of the minutes is sent together with the response letter containing the explained position to the Complainant.

The deadline for resolving a complaint or informing the Complainant on the merits is 15 working days after the receipt of the complaint, but KELER Group makes all reasonable efforts to investigate a complaint as fast as possible and to provide information on the current status of the procedure upon request. Exception to the deadline for response within 15 working days: in the case of complaints other than those received in connection with KELER services, relating to connection to the securities settlement system, participation in the system, terminating system membership or the conditions for termination thereof, where responding to the complaint is not possible within 15 working days, KELER shall reply to the complaint no later than within 30 days.

If the complaint is rejected or the deadline of 15 working days to investigate and give response to the Complaint stated in the regulation is over without any result, KELER Group shall inform the person acting on behalf of the Complainant that it can bring the case to court, in line with the code of civil procedure, in the case of legal dispute related to the creation, validity, legal effects and termination of the contract, breach of contract and related legal effects.
