Dear Readers,
we have been fighting with a domestic problem for two years! our neighbor's chimney makes all our place in smoke and oil! we have complained to a lot of authorities, but nobody could do anything! they all said it is not their problem! Please tell me which European organization could help me with this?
this is happening in Bulgaria - 4400 Pasardzhik!

Please be advised that the European Environment Agency has no mandate for providing legal or technical assistance for complaints relating to environmental legislation, and no powers of investigation related to the issue you raise in your email. Unfortunately, therefore, we are not able to help you.

Under the Treaty establishing the European Community, the European Commission is responsible for ensuring that European Community law is correctly applied. Anyone may lodge a complaint with the European Commission against a European Member State about any measure, which is considered to be incompatible with Community law. However, to be admissible, a complaint has to relate to an infringement of Community law by a Member State.

Complaints to the European Commission (The Directorate-General for the Environment) can be submitted via the following website:
http://ec.europa.eu/environment/legal/law/complaints.htm. See also http://ec.europa.eu/[…]/complaints_en.htm
