Every EU country as well as Iceland and Norway have their own ECC. The operation of the ECC-Net is funded by the European Commission and member states. The ECC-Net receives more than 120 000 consumer questions and complaints annually. Number of contacts reached more than 160 000 during the pandemic year of 2020.
