PR(98)18: Publication of the single market scoreboard


The EFTA Surveillance Authority made public on 4 November 1998 its Single Market Scoreboard - EFTA States No. 3, including the Interim Report on Transposition Status of Directives.

The Single Market Scoreboard - EFTA States deals with the effectiveness of the Single Market rules in the three EFTA States, that is, with the implementation by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway of the Single Market directives that are part of the EEA Agreement, and with the Authority's infringement proceedings against these States with respect to failures to comply with the relevant Single Market rules applicable to them.

In the full EEA context, Norway, with an implementation deficit of 3.8 per cent, shares the 7th place with the United Kingdom, Iceland with 5.4 per cent ranks number 12, while Liechtenstein, despite a good effort, brings up the rear with 7.2 per cent.

The Interim Report on Transposition Status of Directives gives the implementation status in the three EFTA States of all directives which have been made part of the EEA Agreement and which were to be implemented by 15 October 1998.

The Single Market Scoreboard - EFTA States No. 3, including the Interim Report, may be found on the EFTA website (Go to Scoreboard) or obtained directly from the Authority (tel. +32 2 286.18.11).

Also available on that website is now information extracted from the Authority's Acquis Implementation Database (AIDA), which i.a. gives full information on the implementation status of directives relevant for the EEA Agreement, and on the Authority's actions in cases of non-implementation and partial implementation. The website also lists the national legal measures implementing the directives in these EFTA States.
