Procedural right – Language of the final decision
Article(s) involved (national, EU, or other):
Sometimes the language of the decision is different from the language of the complaint (especially in Member States with multiple official languages, like in Belgium for example).
SAs should stick to the language chosen by the complainant, while respecting further requirements imposed by national rules. If there are several official languages in a Member State, the language of the complaint should define the language of the procedure, without prejudice to the translation of the document for the controllers, if necessary.
Concept 2 leads to parties always communicating in the local language of the CSA/LSA they choose.
