Find out if we can accept your complaint

By law the OEP can only accept complaints that meet certain criteria. We've created a simple online tool to help you work out whether the OEP can accept your complaint.

Check if you can complain to the OEP

Use our complaints checker to find out if the OEP can help with your complaint.

You can complain to us if you think that a public authority has broken environmental law. You must first have complained to the responsible public authority.

Please note - we are not the first point of contact for environmental incidents.
