PR(09)69: Iceland fails to incorporate EEA legislation in the field of telecommunications


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for its failure to make Regulation 460/2004 part of the Icelandic legal order.

The Regulation establishes the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) as an agency of the European Union. The EEA EFTA States and their public entities participate in the agency.

The EEA Agreement obliges Iceland to make regulations part of the Icelandic legal order within the deadline set by the EEA Joint Committee. In this case, the Regulation should have been incorporated by 1 February 2006.

The purpose of the reasoned opinion is to give Iceland a last chance to take corrective measures before the Authority decides whether to bring the matter before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given two months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinion.
