PR(08)13: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to accounts for expenditures related to transport infrastructure


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate Commission Regulation (EC) No 851/2006 of 9 June 2006 specifying the items to be included under the various headings in the forms of accounts shown in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1108/70.

In order to charge for the use of transport infrastructure, it is necessary to know what expenditure is incurred in respect of the same infrastructure. According to Council Regulation  (EEC) No 1108/70, information regarding the Member States’ expenditure shall be sent to the Commission. Commission Regulation (EC) No 851/2006 specifies the form for such information.

Icelandshould have incorporated the Regulation by 1 July 2007.

The purpose of the Authority's reasoned opinions is to give the State in question 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.
