05/09/2013: Digest of cases

Every year, the European Ombudsman conducts hundreds of inquiries into possible instances of maladministration by the EU institutions, bodies, offices, and agencies. Decisions and other documents related to these inquiries are published on the Ombudsman's website. The new 'Digest of cases' section of the website contains the key findings of the Ombudsman's inquiries, searchable through a variety of categories, with links to the texts of the full decisions, and other documents where relevant.

  • At your service / Complaint form: The online complaint form now uses SSL (secure socket layer) encryption for even more security. The secure pages are indicated by a padlock symbol. The European Ombudsman's SSL website is verified by GlobalSign Domain Validation CA, GlobalSign nv-sa.
    The online complaint form data is encrypted before being transmitted over the Internet. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorised people to view information travelling between computers. It is therefore very unlikely that anyone can read the page as it travels across the network.
