The Marine Strategy Framework Directive Scoreboard

The table below shows the latest state of implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive by the Member States as regards how well they follow their reporting obligations.  

The table, however, does not give any indication as to whether the notified reports conform to the requirements of the Directive (i.e. if the reported information fulfills all requirements of the respective articles). The Commission is assessing these reports and intends to present a report later in 2013. For information about enforcement of EU laws, including on infringements by Directive and by Member State see this page.

Disclaimer: The information in the table is intended as general information to the public. It may not necessarily reflect the latest formal information that is available to the Commission and, hence, it does not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission. It is not the basis upon which the European Commission decides whether a Member State has fulfilled its obligations under the Directive.

* Member States (AT, CZ, HU, LU, SK) within the catchment area of each marine region or sub-region (so called landlocked countries) shall also designate authorities competent (Article 7) for cooperation and coordination as referred to in Article 6 of the MSFD. Other obligations of the Directive do not apply to them.

** This information only confirms whether a Member State has transposed into national legislation or not. The assessment of the notified transposition legislation of the Member States in view of the requirements of the Directive is still on-going.

Access limitations may apply for files, which are not (yet) released for public view. Files marked with Padlock are unavailable. You must log in to get access.
