Scoreboard 4, May 1999

The EFTA Surveillance Authority made public on 16 June 1999 its Single Market Scoreboard - EFTA States No. 4, including the Interim Report on Transposition Status of Directives.

The present Single Market Scoreboard is issued concurrently with the Commission Single Market Scoreboard No. 4. 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, a comparison between the 18 EEA States shows that Iceland (3,3%) is on par with the United Kingdom on a divided 7th place, and that Norway (3,7%) is on the 9th place between Belgium (3,5%) and Ireland (3,9%).  Liechtenstein (4,3%) has progressed from the last place to hold the 11th place between Ireland (3,9%) and Austria (4,5%).

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 31 May 1999.

Also available on that website is 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.
