Adopting EU directives into national law

The EU's financial reform includes a significant number of directives. EU countries have to transpose them into national law and communicate the measures adopted to the European Commission. The Commission verifies if transpositions are correct and complete, and takes action if necessary to ensure proper transposition. You can find more general information on the Commission’s monitoring and enforcement .

The Commission supports EU countries in the transposition process and monitors the adoption of the national measures required. An overview of the status of the transposition of directives in the financial sector is provided below.

Full transposition status

The full transposition status bar below shows the progress of transposition measures as reported by EU countries. It is regularly updated when the EU countries communicate their transposition measures to the Commission. It shows to what extent EU countries have adopted the necessary measures by the regulatory deadline.

Full transposition status (100%) is granted when all EU countries have notified transposition measures that they consider to be complete. The Commission may open infringement proceedings in case of late communication of those measures and in case of incomplete or incorrect transposition. More details are provided in the Commission's enforcement action below.
