Trend in new infringement procedures

New cases opened between 2014 and 2019 by Member states

Between 2014 and 2019, 4.778 new infringement procedures were opened, of which 254 concern Cyprus, the country most frequently targeted by the European Commission in this regard. It is also worth noting the high number of procedures launched against Belgium (231 new procedures opened between 2014 and 2019), and Greece (229).

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;
