Submit a complaint
We can help you with free legal guidance and help with your complaint if problems have arisen between you and a trader in another EU Member State, Norway, Iceland or the UK.
Complaints can be about everything from cancelled flights and online shopping to hotel stays and unfair subscription agreements. In order for us to help you further with a complaint, you are required first to have complained to the trader yourself, without this having resolved the case.
If you’re unsure of your rights, feel free to ask us via our contact form (opens in a new window) or hotline (open weekdays from 1 pm to 3 pm). Using our services is free of charge.
How ECC Denmark works
When we receive your case, we will assess if you have a claim and see how we can help. If we determine that you do have a claim we can help you with, we will send your case to the ECC office in the country where the company is located.
Please note that ECC Denmark and the ECC’s in the other EU Member States cannot make a ruling in a case. If we cannot find a solution to your case, or if we are unable to take on your complaint, we will inform you of how you can proceed.
You will find a link to the complaints form at the bottom of this page. Please read the information before you make your complaint.
Check if we can take on your case
We cannot assist you with your complaint if:
- You made a purchase from a Danish seller or service provider.
- You made a purchase from a seller outside the EU, Norway, Iceland or the UK.
- You are a business.
- You are not resident in Denmark.
Do you want to complain about goods or services purchased in Denmark?

If you live in another EU Member State, Norway or Iceland, you can contact the ECC Net office in that country.
