2015 marks the 10 years anniversary of the network of European Consumer Centres established in all 28 Member States of the EU, Norway and Iceland and co-funded by the EU consumer Programme. Over the last 10 years, ECCs received more than 650,000 requests for information about their EU consumer rights - up 30 % between 2012 and 2014, and assisted about 300,000 consumers to deal with specific complaints relating to a cross border purchase– up 16 % in the same period. More than two thirds of these complaints could be resolved in an amicable manner between consumers and traders. Here you can find the "The ECC-Net Anniversary Report 2005-2015".
