Languages of the procedure:
Prerequisites for access
- This has to deal with a dispute between a consumer and a company (B2C). Business-to-business (B2B) and consumer-to-consumer (C2C) disputes are excluded. The seller has to be a professional and the vehicle has to be registered in the name of a private individual;
- you must have tried to solve the dispute directly with the company, to no avail.
How does it work
A certified conciliation expert will be designated and will first try to reconcile the parties. If he finds it necessary, he can also, provided the parties agree to it, ask for the assistance of an expert for technical or legal issues. The conciliation expert writes down proposals that are likely to lead the parties to an amicable settlement.
If the Commission can reconcile the parties, a conciliation agreement will be drawn up and signed. It will specify how the costs of the procedure (and, if applicable, of the expertise) are shared. It has the same value as a transaction and, for the parties, as a proper judgement.
If the conciliation procedure fails, the parties are still free to go to court or to refer to the Conciliation Commission to try and reach a conciliation.
