a simple format for membership application

The Complaint/conflict Resolution Policy Framework(CRPF) intends to ensure mutually fair and open negotiations between the shrimp farm(s) and stakeholders.
Each farm has a Complaint/conflict Resolution Policy Framework (CRPF).
Each farm will have a sign at their gate stating a contact number by phone and an email address
Each farm will have complaint forms available at the office and/or entrance gate to report a complaint.
Each farm has a designated employee and an alternate, which are trained to take down a complaint.
Complaints/conflicts have to be documented by the complainant: description of the event, location (precise description or map and/or GPS coordinates), pictures if available, witnesses if present, and duration of the event as far as known.
Non-documented events cannot be filed.
