Trend in new infringement procedures

New cases opened between 2014 and 2019

Between 2014 and 2019, almost 4000 of these letters were dispatched, with an average of 796 per year. In 2019, infringement procedures started to rise again after a 3-year trend of decline.

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;
