The EEA has no legal mandate for providing legal or technical assistance for legal complaints and no powers of investigation.

The European Commission is responsible for ensuring that Community law is correctly applied and anyone may lodge a complaint with the Commission against a Member State. To be admissible, a complaint has to relate to an infringement of Community law by a Member State.

Anyone who considers lodging a complaint with the Commission is also invited to seek redress from the national administrative or judicial authorities (including the national or regional ombudsman and/or arbitration and conciliation procedures available).

Internet and postal addresses of relevant national authorities can be obtained at:
