The National service of the Mediator of consumption (Service national du Médiateur de la consommation) is a neutral and independent body which makes available to consumers and traders a voluntary and confidential procedure designed to resolve consumer disputes, that is to say disputes deriving from a sale contract or a service contract entered into between a consumer and a trader, on an amicable basis.

The Mediator of consumption may serve as an impartial intermediary in order to facilitate dialogue between the parties and assist them in jointly seeking an amicable solution. If the parties do not reach an amicable agreement, the Mediator of consumption can suggest a solution to them, which they are free to accept or reject.

If you experience problems with an administration in another Member State of the European Union, you can turn to SOLVIT.

SOLVIT was set up by the European Commission in 2002. This online network will find an alternative (informal) solution for complaints from consumers and businesses. These complaints must concern a misapplication of internal market laws by administrations.

SOLVIT Centres exist in every country of the EU as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. They deal with the complaints for free.

The solutions proposed are not binding. However, if the outcome of the procedure is not satisfactory, you can appeal to the European Commission or refer the dispute to the courts.

Luxembourg Institute of Regulation (ILR)

A consumer residing in Luxembourg or within the territory of the European Union may introduce an application for mediation against a professional (operator, supplier/operator of electricity/natural gas network or postal service provider) established in Luxembourg. In the same way, a professional established in Luxembourg may introduce an application for mediation against a consumer residing in Luxembourg.

The ILR proposes an alternative dispute resolution mechanism by which an independent third party, called the mediator, helps the parties to find an amicable solution to their dispute.

The mediation process is voluntary, free and quick.
