New infringement cases opened during the year

Trend between 2014 and 2019

Over the years, the percentage of procedures against late implementation of European law has increased: 65 percent of the total in 2014, in 2018 74 percent. But in 2019 this parcentage fell to 38,20%. In the same year, 44.07 percent of cases were launched against misapplication of EU law, and 17,73 percent against violations of European treaties or regulations.

An infringement procedure can be launched for three different reasons: non-communication: when the member state has failed to communicate its transposition measures to the Commission on time;
non-application: when the European Commission finds that the member state’s legislation is not in line with European legislation; misapplication: when European law is not applied, or is applied incorrectly, by the member state;
