1. Methods of submitting a complaint
Complaints must be submitted in writing, by letter, fax or e mail.

It is very important for the complaint papers to be complete and accurate, particularly as regards the facts complained of in relation to the Member State in question, any steps which you have already taken at any level and, as far as possible, the provisions of EU law which you consider to have been infringed and any involvement of an EU funding scheme.

Any correspondence denouncing measures or practices by a Member State which it considers incompatible with a provision or principle of Community law must be examined within a month regarding the decision to classify it as a complaint. The Secretariat-General of the Commission shall issue an initial acknowledgement of all correspondence within fifteen working days of receipt. Where there is any doubt as to the status of the correspondence, the Secretariat-General consults the department or departments concerned within fifteen calendar days of its arrival.

Correspondence likely to be investigated as a complaint will be recorded in a database managed by the Secretariat-General of the Commission.

The responsibility for the examination of the subject matter of any correspondence or complaint lies with the Commission departments.

Cases that pertain to the same infringement in the same Member State are merged and processed under the same reference.
