- Information about dispute resolution methods and their institution
- Information about the consumer's rights, which must be included on each electricity bill or on the website of the distribution system operator or energy retailer
The above-mentioned information is not mandatory if the agreement is oral and the electricity user does not want the information. If the agreement is written, the consumer will receive the contractual terms when signing the agreement.
If the agreement is oral, the seller must submit a confirmation notice including the contractual terms to the consumer in arrear. The confirmation notice must be sent without delay and at the latest within two weeks of the agreement having been made.
