Liechtenstein complaints handling

There are no specific definitions of a complaint or a complainant under Liechtenstein regulation.

The existing EIOPA definitions should be applied.


Definition of a complaint

A statement of dissatisfaction addressed to an insurance undertaking by a person relating to the insurance contract or service he/she has been provided with. Complaints handling should be differentiated from claims handling as well as from simple requests for execution of the contract, information or clarification.


Definition of a complainant

A person who is presumed to be eligible to have a complaint considered by an insurance undertaking and has already lodged a complaint e.g. a policyholder, insured person, beneficiary and in some jurisdictions, injured third party.



A prompt acknowledgement of the complaint, in writing, within 5 (five) business days of the complaint being made.

A final response to be provided within 8 (eight) weeks of receipt of the complaint.
