Scoreboard, January 2004

Since 1997, the European Commission and the EFTA Surveillance Authority have issued Internal Market Scoreboards to measure to success of the EU and EFTA States in complying with their obligations under the EC Treaty and the EEA Agreement.

In this thirteenth Internal Market Scoreboard, the EFTA Surveillance Authority publishes figures comparable to those drawn up by the Commission of the European Community (European Commission). Both Scoreboards gauge the success of the States participating in the EEA by ensuring compliance with Internal Market rules and principles. The EFTA Surveillance Authority's Scoreboard does this by providing information on:

  • Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway's performance on transposition of EEA directives into national legislation,
  • The actions taken by the EFTA Surveillance Authority to ensure that the EFTA States correctly implement and apply internal market rules and principles,
  • The EFTA States' record on solving alleged infringements concerning correct implementation and application of internal market rules and principles.

The three EFTA States have shown again that new EEA Acts are incorporated into national legislation expeditiously. Compared with May 2003, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway have improved their implementation record, and all three EFTA States still rank among the EEA States that have the lowest transposition deficits.
