Options of Objection to Control Results

Mistakes can occur anywhere. As a matter of fact also in the valuations of the Control Service SAP. Most mistakes are detected by the integrated quality management procedures of the Control Service SAP. However, if a mistake goes undetected, or if there are major disagreements  between the inspector and the inspected person about the assessment result, the regular objection procedure of the Control Service SAP can be claimed. It consists of two levels.

In general, complaints and appeals are liable to charges. Charges must be paid in advance but are partially refund if an appeal is granted to the objector.
