Complaints data

Consumers, participating companies, media and other organisations frequently ask about the types and volumes of complaints and enquiries that we handle. We currently share a range of figures in our annual report, including the total number of complaints we resolve and a breakdown by sector. We also publish quarterly statistics about the complaints we accept and resolve in the energy sector.
