Fish Health Inspectorate Service Charter
Complaints and appeals

5. Complaints and Appeals Procedure

We aim to resolve complaints or appeals about our service quickly, and, whenever possible, in a simple and straightforward way.

If you have a complaint about our service or our staff or an appeal about the result of an inspection, the Scottish Government will work with you to resolve the issue. If something has gone wrong we will try to resolve the problem quickly and implement any improvements that are needed to prevent similar mistakes in future.

To use our Complaints Handling Procedure, first please contact The Fish Health Inspectorate and working with you, we will aim to achieve frontline resolution which is Stage One of the Complaints Handling Procedures.
