What Happens Next?
The procedure is then invoked as follows:
- The CORE-Materials team will acknowledge receipt of your complaint by email or letter and will make an initial assessment of the validity and plausibility of the complaint, possibly taking legal advice.
- If plausible, the material will be immediately removed from the CORE-Materials website pending further investigation.
- When possible, the CORE-Materials team will contact the individual(s) responsible for publication of the material and notify them it is the subject of a complaint. Details of the allegations will be passed on and the individuals will be encouraged to address the complaint concerned.
The CORE-Materials team aims to resolve any issue swiftly and amicably with the complainant and to the satisfaction of both parties. After a complaint has been received and the three actions have taken place, the complaint may result in the following possible outcomes:
- The material is replaced on the CORE-Materials website unchanged;
- The material is replaced on the CORE-Materials website with changes;
- The material is permanently removed from the CORE-Materials website.
If CORE-Materials and the complainant are unable to agree a solution, the material will remain unavailable through CORE-Materials until a time when a resolution has been reached.
