AEPS adheres to the BCAA-developed standard appeal procedure and uses the feedback/dispute/complaint form available in Annex VII for the correct initiation, follow-up and closure of a request for feedback, a dispute, or complaint by a candidate. Here are the general conditions for disputes/complaints management, regarding language proficiency assessments:
1. Each candidate will be informed correctly regarding the dispute/complaint procedure, by AEPS: the candidate has a right to feedback and can, when using the correct procedure, enter in dialogue with AEPS to offer suggestions for the benefit of all language assessment stakeholders.
2. When a dispute arises, the candidate will be invited to fill out a standard BCAA-feedback/dispute/complaint form regarding language proficiency assessment and send it to AEPS address (or transfer it via softcopy)
3. BCAA is NOT to be included in the initial dispute/complaint process. Any inclusion of BCAA services in initial stages of disputes/complaints, the candidate will be reoriented to AEPS.
4. AEPS will deal INTERNALLY with the dispute/complaint. The CMM of AEPS has the overall responsibility over the initial phase of STAGE 1: the request for feedback. The CMM will gather information regarding the assessment and provide feedback to the candidate regarding the way in which the assessment was performed and which aspects of the language assessment contributed to the decision of the overall result. This is a basic first analysis of the language proficiency assessment as is intended to assist the candidate in a future re-assessment.
5. If the issue of the candidate with one or more aspects of the language proficiency assessment is of more serious nature, or the answer provided by the CMM does not solve the difference in opinion between AEPS and the candidate, the candidate is invited to launch a dispute/complaint procedure (STAGE 2).
6. Stage 2 of the appeal procedure will be handled by the AM (Accountable Manager) of AEPS. The AM is to use all assets available, to perform an in-depth analysis of the circumstances and content of the disputed language proficiency assessment. These may be: Interviews of the assessors, or the candidate, review of the assessment video file by a second team of assessors, negotiation with post holders within AEPS, review of AEPS’s Operations Manual or the BCAA Procedure Manual for Language Proficiency, or asking advice to the National Coordinator for Language Proficiency. The AM should take into account all aspects, to establish a full analysis of the circumstances leading up to the complaint of the candidate.
7. Taking into consideration all the available information, the AM should make a documented decision that is to be communicated to the candidate, using the standard BCAA feedback/dispute/complaint form.
8. ONLY if steps 1-7 do not lead to a mutual understanding/acceptance of the result by all parties, BCAA may be consulted, either by the candidate or AEPS and be requested to act as mediator in the dispute between AEPS and the candidate.
9. Initially BCAA will in case of lasting disputes between AEPS and the candidate, only verify if the dispute/complaint procedure, as described in this Procedure Manual for Language Proficiency and in the Operations Manual of AEPS, was adhered to.
10. BCAA will only reassesses the recording in exceptional cases, either at the request of another CAA (Civil Aviation Authority, or Competent Authority of Oversight), EASA, or following a civil court order, or request, or if the dispute between AEPS and the candidate can’t be resolved among each other.
