This procedure shall be fully compliant with the EU Online Dispute Resolution Regulation (Regulation (EU) 524/2013) and UK implementation of the EU Alternative Dispute Directive (2013/11/EU).

Once the European Commission operates its intended online disputes referral system consumers in another EU state will be able to submit complaints through its portal at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
