EC Takes Action Over Failure To Implement EU Laws

by Ulrika Lomas, for LawAndTax-News.com, Brussels

14 December 2006


In addition to several other actions, the European Commission announced on Wednesday that it has decided to pursue infringement procedures against Cyprus, Luxembourg, Sweden and Portugal to ensure full and correct implementation of certain Internal Market Directives.

The Commission announced that it has decided to refer Sweden to the European Court of Justice over its failure to implement correctly into national law certain elements of the Legal Expenses Insurance Directive.

The Commission has also decided, under Article 228 of the EC Treaty, to send a letter of formal notice asking Luxembourg and Portugal for full information on their execution of European Court judgements concerning implementation of a Directive on rental and lending rights.

Finally, the Commission has formally requested Cyprus to complete its implementation of five company law Directives. These requests take the form of reasoned opinions. If there is no satisfactory reply within two months, the Commission may refer the matter to the European Court of Justice.
