At the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) a Complaints Committee is active. Students, employees and third parties have the right to direct an individual complaint regarding the manner in which a faculty body, or an individual whose behaviour can be imputed to that faculty body, has conducted itself in a certain situation towards the plaintiff, insofar as those involved have not been able to reach a solution in joint consultation.
Complaints regarding inappropriate behaviour (My UM > Human Resources Management > Confidential Advisor's Office), such as sexual intimidation, aggression, violence and discrimination fall within the scope of another regulation: the "Complaints and Disciplinary Procedures Regulation for Reporting and Processing Inappropriate Behaviour" provided by the Executive Board on 19 September 2000 and the amendments made since.
The process of submitting a complaint differs for students, and employees and third parties. Students should direct their complaint to the UM Complaints Service Point. Employees and third parties should direct an oral complaint to the committee chair and a written complaint to the dean.

Further information about the complaint procedure is outlined in the "Regulations concerning the processing of individual complaints in the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences".
