Scoreboard, February 2009

The Internal Market Scoreboard shows that the average transposition deficit of the EEA EFTA States remains at 1.3%, i.e. the same as at the time of the previous Scoreboard. The average transposition deficit of the EU Member States is 1.0%.

With transposition deficit of 0.6%, Liechtenstein complies with the future 1.0% interim target. Norway complies with the current 1.5% target with 1.1% deficit. Regrettably Iceland's deficit, at 2.2% for the third consecutive time, remains well above the current target.

When comparing the 30 EEA States, all three EEA EFTA States are positioned lower in the performance table than at the time of the previous Scoreboard.
Iceland has two directives overdue by more than two years, Liechtenstein and Norway one each.
Norway has an average transposition delay of 7.0 months, Iceland 9.4 and Liechtenstein 13.6 months. The average transposition delays have increased for all the three States since the previous Scoreboard.

The total number of infringement cases pursued by the Authority decreased by 8 cases from the time of the previous Scoreboard.
The overall number of infringement cases due to lack of conformity with or incorrect application of Internal Market rules remains at the same level as at the time of the previous Scoreboard. In comparison to the EU Member States, the number of such infringement proceedings against the EEA EFTA States remains low.

The number of infringement cases concerning non-timely transposition of directives by the EEA EFTA States increased significantly since the previous Scoreboard.
The number of infringement cases against Iceland due to non-timely transposition of regulations remains at a high level.
