SOLVIT: Putting European Businesses at the Heart of the Internal Market

 SOLVIT, the free online problem solving network of the European Commission, helped a record number 1,500 citizens and businesses find answers to problems encountered in the Internal Market during 2009. This was a 54% increase compared to the previous year.

 

About 86% of SOLVIT cases were successfully resolved – all without legal proceedings or fees. The corresponding cost savings from SOLVIT services in 2009 was an estimated EUR 128 million.

Since 2002 the service has been a useful tool for businesses and citizens that need problems solved quickly, particularly those related to the misapplication of Internal Market rules by public authorities. The average time for treating a case was 59 days.

There is a SOLVIT centre in each Member State, which is housed within the national administration. These centres cooperate directly through an online database to provide pragmatic solutions to the queries submitted by citizens and businesses.
