Please complete this form to register a complaint with the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC). Before submitting a complaint, please ensure you have read the Important Information to ensure this is a matter which can be addressed by RECC.

This dispute resolution process may be used by domestic consumers only.

Dispute Resolution - Important Privacy Information


  1. Before completing our Complaints Registration Form, please note that we (Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd. (REAL)) will only process the personal data you submit on this Form in connection with handling your complaint and in accordance with the RECC Privacy Policy Statement, which can be found at https://www.recc.org.uk/privacy.

  2. If your complaint falls within our remit, it will be handled through RECC’s Dispute Resolution Process (Mediation Procedure and Independent Arbitration Service) which will entail sharing your personal data with the Code Member or former Code Member (if the company is no longer registered with RECC), in order to investigate the complaint, unless you tell us you do not want us to share your personal data with the Code Member or former Code Member.

  3. If your complaint includes details of any technical issues with the installation of the system or products installed, we will not be able to handle those parts of your complaint. In this case we will refer those parts of your complaint to the relevant Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) Certification Body for investigation, in accordance with their complaints process.  Further information about the MCS complaints process, which the Certification Bodies must follow, can be found on their website at: https://www.microgenerationcertification.org/consumers/complaints.  The MCS Certification Body will respond to you direct in relation to those parts of your complaint.

    In addition, we may share your personal data with other third parties such as Trading Standards offices, the finance regulator, the energy regulator, the Chartered Trading Standards Institute and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, but we will only do so if we consider it will assist us in our role to prevent consumer detriment.

  4. Under data protection, you have certain rights in relation to how we process your personal data, including the right to be informed, right to access your personal data, the right to rectification, the right to erasure, the right to restrict processing, and the right to object. Further details about your rights and how to exercise any of your rights can found in the RECC Privacy Policy Statement on our website: https://www.recc.org.uk/privacy.
