Updated Single Market Scoreboard: transposition of directives improving but Member States can do better

Updated Single Market Scoreboard: transposition of directives improving but Member States can do better
Published on: 15/04/2015

According to the latest edition of the Single Market Scoreboard, Member States have improved the timely transposition of EU legislation into national law (0.5%) compared to six months ago (0.6%). However, the number of pending infringements concerning incorrect transposition of directives, violation of Treaty articles and regulations, or bad application of the Single Market rules has slightly increased (826 registered cases, which is 10 cases more than in May 2014).

Enforcement of Single Market law is a key priority for the Commission. The Member States should continue their efforts in ensuring that our common rules work efficiently in practice and are meaningful to citizens and businesses.
