On 29 May 2017, the European Investment Bank (EIB) launched a public consultation as part of the review of the Complaints Mechanism Principles, Terms of Reference and Rules of Procedure. The review process concluded with the adoption of a revised policy by the EIF’s Board of Directors on 12 November and the EIB’s Board of Directors on 13 November 2018.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the process. 

The EIB Group Complaints Mechanism is a public accountability tool, part of the institutional context of the European Union. It enables alternative and pre-emptive resolution of disputes between complainants and the EIB Group. In addition, the Complaints Mechanism assists the EIB Group, for the common purpose of good administration, by advising on possible improvements to the implementation of its activities.

One of the main objectives of the EIB Group Complaints Mechanism is to ensure the right to be heard and the right to complain of EIB Group stakeholders, thus giving voice to their concerns regarding maladministration.  Addressing complaints of any kind is a Group-wide responsibility as it helps the EIB Group to enhance its performance and activities.
