Action under article 260

Under Article 260 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) and Article 106a of the Euratom Treaty, if a Member State has not taken the necessary measures to comply with a judgment of the Court of Justice, the Commission may refer the matter to the Court of Justice.

The decision on a second referral to the Court of Justice on the basis of Art. 260 TFEU must always be accompanied by a proposal for a penalty and/or lump sum payment. Calculation of the penalty payment is based on a method that takes account of the seriousness of the infringement, having regard to the importance of the rules breached and the impact of the infringement on general and particular interests, its duration and the Member State’s ability to pay, with a view to ensuring that the penalty itself has a deterrent effect.

Rulings by the Court are binding on all EU Member States as well as on the EU institutions themselves.
