What is a complaint?
Complaints against financial institutions are regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority’s statute book FFFS 2002:23. This states, among other things, that a complaint is defined as a client of an institution in an individual case expressing tangible dissatisfaction with the handling of a financial service or product.
General comments and general discontentment in this context are not considered a complaint or dissatisfaction, which must be considered to have little significance for the customer. The definition of Complaint is significant as there is a whole framework of regulations for how institutions must act on Complaints.

National Board for Consumer Complaints (ARN)
If you are not satisfied after the complaints officer has assessed your complaint, you can turn to the National Board for Consumer Complaints (ARN).

Note that there are limits on time and amounts regarding the possibility to approach ARN and that each party must bear its own costs during the procedure regardless of the assessment made by ARN.
Another option is to turn to the general courts. Should this become necessary, you must keep in mind that disputes relating to amounts less than half a base amount can be handled within the framework of simplified judicial proceedings known as “Small Claims”.
The greater the amount in dispute the more important it is, ideally through a representative, to examine the possibility of winning a trial. You should always look into whether you have an insurance policy that provides compensation for lawyer fees or whether you can apply for legal aid.
