Single Entry Point

The Single Entry Point is a team within the European Commission’s trade department, under the leadership of the Chief Trade Enforcement Officer. The Single Entry Point is the first point of contact for all EU stakeholders who are facing potential trade barriers in third countries or who find non-compliance with sustainability rules related to Trade and Sustainable Development or the Generalised Scheme of Preferences our trading partners.

To help you find your way, the Single Entry Point has developed two complaint forms, one on market access/trade barriers and one on sustainability issues - as well as step-by-step guides to completing them.
