Note that the European Consumer Centre Ireland can only assist with complaints from private consumers resident in the Republic of Ireland against a business based in a different European Union country, Norway, Iceland or the United Kingdom. We are unable to assist with complaints against businesses that are based outside the EU/EEA.
If you are resident in Ireland and you have a consumer dispute with a trader that is also based in Ireland, we are unable to provide advice or assistance. In this case, you would need to contact the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission here: ccpc.ie
For the purpose of assessing and responding to your complaint as quickly and efficiently as possible, when you submit your complaint please make sure that you provide us with the following:
- Your name and contact details
- The name and details of the trader
- The country where the trader is based
- A detailed description of your complaint
- What resolution you are seeking
- Copies of relevant supporting documentation including your correspondence with the trader to date
Before you contact us, make sure you have exhausted the trader’s complaints process first. If you have difficulties communicating with a business, learn how to make an effective complaint here.
After you have tried to resolve the matter directly with the trader to no avail,
please contact us for assistance by e-mail at this address:
