52 Pa. Code § 63.221. Customer complaint procedures.


§ 63.221. Customer complaint procedures.

 (a)  Records of complaints. An LSP covered by or operating under this title shall preserve written or recorded complaints showing the name and address of the applicant or complainant, the date and character of the complaint, the action taken and the date of final disposition. Records of complaints for residential customers shall be kept in accordance with §  64.192 (relating to record maintenance).

 (b)  Commission review. If a customer or applicant expresses dissatisfaction with the LSP’s decision or explanation, the LSP shall inform the customer or applicant of the right to have the dispute considered and reviewed by the Commission and shall provide the name, address and telephone number of the appropriate Commission bureau. This subsection shall be read in conjunction with Chapter 64, Subchapters G and H (relating to disputes; informal and formal complaints; and restoration of service) for residential service.

 (c)  Investigations. Within 1 working day of receiving a complaint covered by this subchapter from an applicant, customer or third party, the Commission will transmit a summary of the complaint to the LSP. When complaints are referred to the LSP through the Commission, the LSP and the Commission will work to process and resolve the complaints. An LSP shall make a full and prompt investigation of complaints made to it through the Commission by the applicant, customer or third party. For complaints involving commercial service, if the LSP needs more than 30 days to respond to the Commission, the LSP shall advise the Commission of that need within 30 days of the date it receives the complaint summary and indicate when it will send its response to the Commission.

 (d)  Resolutions. If a complaint is resolved between the LSP and the complaining party, the LSP shall advise the Commission within 10 working days of the resolution and submit a copy of the service order or other documentation of satisfaction which identifies the action taken by the LSP to resolve the complaint. The LSP may not consider the complaint closed until the Commission advises the LSP that the Commission has closed the complaint.
